Mauricio takes great care through all steps of production. Every lot is tracked by harvest date and his processing facilities are immaculate. He is also driven by a desire to take good care of the local environment, using rain water for his washed process coffee and reusing the skin of the dry process coffee to produce a delicious cascara tea.
Finca Cruz Gorda at its highest point has spectacular views of the famous Apaneca llamatepec Mountain Range and is rich in flora and fauna, including rabbits, deer, the gold-fronted woodpecker and a variety of snakes. The sandy loam soil is well suited to supporting coffee plants among the pine trees, pastures and rolling hills of the area.
