Story

In January 2017, our baristas Rob and Bonne visited El Manzano when the harvest was in full swing.

Emilio, the owner, gave us a lot of insights into coffee growing and processing.

We were amazed by the structure and discipline present on his farm, both of which Emilio believes are the basis for his succes.

This visit changed some of our more romantic ideas about coffee farms, but for the better as we now have a much more realistic view of how coffee growing works and what makes a good farm run smoothly!
