The farm is run by 2 brothers; Nestor & Adrian, who are a remarkable pair. At just 22 & 24 years old, they offer a fresh perspective and a lot of hope for an industry that is seeing so many young people move away from coffee farming. While Nestor is responsible for sample roasting, cupping and sales, his brother Adrian spends all his time at the farm or helping his dad Jose at the central mill.
He reads, researches and experiments what he learns at the farm, bringing a passion for natural processing to the table. Together, they have broken down the conventional methods of coffee production and started experimenting with exotic varieties, micro-organisms, fermentation methods, different processes specific to sugar content and ripeness. The result is outstanding.
