Farm: San Francisco
Producer: Don Fabio Caballero
In the cup: Medium to full weight, very well-balanced with citric acidity and creamy mouth feel. This coffee has sweet caramel aromatics, brown sugar sweetness and flavours of caramel, peach, orange, plum and red apple.
San Francisco is Don’s second farm. Located, in the Marcala region this is his lowest growing farm. As Marcala can be quite cold on high altitude, this is beneficial for the growth of the coffee. A wide range of premium qualities are produced on this farm ranging from 84 to 90+ points coffees.
His Catuai and Typicas trees take up the most area on the farm. The warmer climate (compared with his other farms) allows for much less maintenance. Plants mature a bit faster but are also stronger. Every 6-7 years every section of the farm is replaced with new plants which Don believes are stronger.
Don Fabio’s daughter, Marysabel, helps to manage some of his farms. They have entered their lots to competitions multiple times and in 2016 they won 1st place on Cup of Excellence with a record price of USD$265/kg.
