This farm is managed by a lady from a traditional coffee growing family who is also a co-owner. The farm is planted with Typica coffee. I have of late decided that for me this is the ultimate morning cup of coffee. There is something very good indeed about the typica varietal. It has everything flavor wise I am looking for, without blowing your mouth away - it is subtle and refined. It an old fashioned varietal that lost popularity as it is not as high yielding as some of the more modern hybrids. Also, it grows into very tall coffee trees that are too high for the Indigenous to pick without ladders and more expensive to pay the Indigenous to pick where the yields are lower and it is tougher to reach the cherries as they are paid by lata - which is a volume picked measurement. I love it so much, I am planting it on my own farm. Delicious.
Here are some pictures of the farm and the gardens. Thank you Lourdes!
