Description

In 1990, the Gonzalez family purchased Hacienda El Cafetal. Captivated by the plantation’s history, the family saw a unique opportunity presented by the micro climates created by the Humboldt Current, the intense equatorial sun and the dramatic climate change that occurs as the altitude increases. Small rivers fed by the ‘El Junco’ (a volcanic crater lake) flow gently down the rocky slopes on the island’s sun drenched southern side. This mineral-rich spring water keeps the rich volcanic soil moist and fertile, bringing great coffee and life to the island. 

Today, we are fortunate to enjoy this truly remarkable cup of coffee thanks to the Gonzalez family’s dedication and hard work.

Processing
Washed with Fermentation: Once harvested, the coffee cherries go straight to the mill to be sorted and processed through a series of steps. First, they’re submerged in water allowing the unripe cherries to float to the top and be removed. All ripe cherries move on to the depulping stage, removing their skin and the pulpy layer beneath it. Then, to soften and remove the remaining sticky mucilage, the resulting beans are placed in fermentation tanks and soaked for periods of 24-36 hours. The final steps consist of drying the beans, either mechanically or by sun drying. Once done, they are sorted, graded and bagged.
