fernando and angie
Fernando and Angie own coffee plantations in the Western Valley of Costa Rica. Their estate is located at more than 1800 meters above sea level.
Fernando is an agricultural engineer and has been cultivating new hybrid F-1 coffee varieties. These varieties make their land not only more productive than average, but result in amazing quality coffees with high SCA cupping scores. They participate in the Cup of Excellence competition every year.
Angie recently acquired her Q-grader certification. Her tasting skills and dedication are focused on finding the best processing method for each variety that they cultivate.
