Founded in 1932, the 14ha of farmland was planted with it's first Bourbon trees, before the second generation planted an additional 23ha of Bourbon trees.
Although these older Bourbon trees have lower productivity, their cherry quality is unrivaled and thankfully, some of these heirloom Bourbon trees have survived bouts of coffee rust attacks and have contributed to the Flores brothers (third generation farmers) annual harvest of almost 500 bags of coffee to specialty coffee roasters annually. That's a huge achievement for the brothers who were still selling cherries by the roadside in 2004.
A small operation, the farm employs 20-40 people to specially hand-pick, sort, bag the coffee cherries which are immediately pulped within a few hours at the wet mill down in the valley. The coffee is fermented and fully washed in clean water before being carefully monitored while drying, before being moved back to the mills to rest once optimal moisture levels are achieved.
