Maria Bolanos has been producing coffee for a number of years and is the head of the family running the farm and coffee production. She lives on the farm with her two sons and grandson. They have been working towards the organic certification on the farm as well as looking at ways to improve their coffee production with technical help from Cosurca.

The coffee is grown under the shade of Guamo & Cachimbo trees. Once harvested the coffee is then de-pulped and fermented for 18 hours before being washed and screened 4 times. From here the coffee is then taken to a parabolic tent where it is dried on raised beds for 8 days.
