Rafael comes from a long line of coffee growers dating to the 1870's. Rafael's ancestors decided to try planting coffee on one of the highest summits of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range sitting between 1,450 and 1,650 meters above sea level. The two named that farm La Siberia, for its chaotic - often cool - weather conditions and difficult accessibility. They are extremely conscious in their growing practices, and their agricultural practices have mostly stayed the same since the beginning. Each generation has taught the next with an eye on continually innovating - using sustainable practices to improve quality.
Tasting Notes: medium bodied, sweet and round. The meticulous slow drying in the sun lends itself to a balanced and syrupy cup.
