At 72 years old, Agustin Gomez has been working with coffee his entire life and brings all of this experience to his operation today. His 10-hectare farm is his family’s legacy, one that he hopes to pass onto his children. Coffee is something that he finds in his heart, and each year he strives for improvements in quality.

With 25 thousand coffee trees of the Catuai, Typica, Pacamara, and Geisha varieties, he seeks the help of up to 50 people for the harvest. Five people are employed year-round to maintain the crop, with all pruning and maintenance performed by hand.

STATIC CHERRY
For this process, the ambient environment is crucial. We seal the cherry into plastic tanks, with no oxygen present. By creating an anaerobic environment, we allow certain bacteria and yeast to develop at a slower rate. This means we are free to experiment with different durations, in this case, an average of 24 to 72 hours. These relatively short fermentations lend a subtle vibrancy to the profile, due to the prevalence of lactic acids in the cherry.
