The lot El Bosque, is part of the farm Fidel that won the first award in Cup of Excellence 2013. This farm has some characteristics such as volcanic origin soils and warm weather that are perfect for the coffee production. Here you will be delighted by breathing pure air and feel such peace. For being in such a high area, we cannot use shade in the coffee plantation, but we make a big effort to maintain vegetation on the banks of the rivers and in the bounds with other farms.
Because of getting the first (2013), tenth (2014), seventh and eighth (2015) places in Cup of Excellence, we are proud of our coffee. This award is a huge motivation for our micro-mill Vista al Valle. This project we’ve longed for years; it is where we perform as individuals. It requires much effort and dedication (it’s our passion).
