This year we got a little added excitement. One member of our traveling party awoke early to the sound of… Continue Reading
In the past 23-years of coffee harvests, this is the first time in memory, for our friend and Owner of Finca El Molino, Jose Antonio Salaverrria, that three key factors in coffee farming aligned in the favor of the coffee producer.
