ABOUT THE FARM & FARMER

For many years, José Santos Gonzales worked in clothing manufacturing. During all these years, he saved up with the intention of starting to work in agriculture. In the year 2010, when he was looking for land and something to grow on it, lots of people recommended coffee, they said it was profitable and it was sustainable in the region. José then found himself a plot of land, which he named Corea, after his mother’s last name, and began his coffee nursery. Later that year, he quit his job to dedicate himself full time to the farm and since then, he has been fully focused on his work there. When he started producing coffee, he produced conventional coffee, but it wasn’t very profitable, he received low prices for a considerable amount of work, which wasn’t enough for him to sustain his family. José Santos even thought of selling his farm and returning back to
his old life.

However, in 2016, thanks to a couple of his neighbours and to Beneficio San Vicente, who introduced José to specialty coffee, he was able to move forward and come out of his economic
crisis. That year, he prepared his first lot for the specialty coffee market, and that was the turning point of his coffee life, since then, the farm has been going really well. Now, he is proud that he knows what his coffee is worth and knowing that his coffee is being very well-rewarded. He says, “I’m excited that my coffee is reaching foreign places and I’m thankful for all the support I’ve
received.” In the short term, he plans to improve his post-harvest infrastructure to continue improving his quality.

        Place your order, then give us some time to roast and pack for you (usually less than two business days).

        Once received ready for pickup notification, come in, check in, and say hi to either Matty or Po.

        Can you grind my coffee?

        Sorry, we sell whole beans only.

         
        The reason being is that pre-grinding freshly roasted coffee means that it affects the integrity of the coffee and this makes the coffee expire a lot faster. It's like having artisan bread being pre-sliced or a piece of fruit being left out in the sun!

        I have other questions
