Getting product details...

From Clifton Coffee:

Finca La Pila is proudly run by Rodolfo Garcia and his wife Reina. Rodolfo has been in coffee his whole life. When he was young, he used to work on farms as a coffee picker to earn money, and at 25 years old, he inherited a plot of land from his father, so that he could start his own farm business. Little by little he managed to make steps ahead, increase the volume of his coffee, and invest in another plot of land. Rodolfo is always eager to work on the quality of his coffee. He is not only interested in developmental farming practices like analysing the soil for the benefits of the plants, but also of the processing. He even adopted a bicycle for depulping of his cherries! Rodolfo’s excitement is extremely contagious and has reached his neighbours.

This season Rodolfo coordinated the collection of cherries every afternoon at his farm, La Pila, together with his neighbours. As a result of this collaboration, this lot tastes wonderful.
