TRADITION MEETS INNOVATION

Owned by the Ramirez-Navarro family, its founder Mr. Alexis Ramirez was a farmer that dedicated his entire life to agriculture.

 

In 2015 as an overcoming challenge, they made the big step of building their own micro-mill, "Los Campos" with the idea of processing the coffee themselves in order to focus on the quality and traceability of their micro-lots and stop depending on the cooperative system.

The main variety they cultivate is Caturra-Catuai, although they are taking new steps into planting F-1 Hybrid varieties on their farm. These new plants come from Gaia Artisan Coffee, also our partners.

 

Many of their lots are processed using fermentation techniques (aerobic and anaerobic), reason why their coffees tend to be complex, sweet and fruity.
