Producer: Abel Ortiz
Variety: Pache San Ramon
Roast Level: Dark
In 1967 Abel Ortiz's grandfather Felipe planted the first coffee variety on the farm. It was the Bourbon variety and in 1987 his father planted another variety; Pache San Ramon. Since that time Abel has been able to consistently keep a good crop of that variety. Back then there were no mining companies in the area so the soil and product as a bit better. Since 2000 he has continued planting Pache and continues to improve quality year over year. Abel also tries to farm sustainably by replacing forests and trying to keep a balance between farming and nature. The farm is at 1600m above sea level. He would like to thank everyone that continues to buy his coffee for and let them know how important it is for his and his families livelyhood...
