Farmer Mauricio Salaverria

We have been working with Maurizio for several years now, and it is a great honour for us to have the opportunity to welcome him for cupping in our coffee lab and to offer a selection of coffee from his farm in La Bohème café.

The Bourbon variety processed by the dry method first undergoes drying on so-called "African beds, " leading to a cleaner and more balanced taste. After drying, the next step is to remove the coffee skin by peeling and using rainwater as an energy source. Mauricio applies his expertise, time and energy to growing a wide range of coffee varieties and processing them. His coffee was among the best in the prestigious Cup of Excellence 2015 competition, thanks to his efforts.

The farm Finca Villa Galicia meets all our requirements that we set when choosing our partners. Although he is a demanding grower, he is also considerate not only of the environment, but also of his workers.

Finca Villa Galicia

The Villa Galicia farm, located at an altitude of 1,600 metres, boasts a beautiful location and exceptionally high-quality soil. Mauricio, the owner of this farm, has made considerable efforts to process the coffee organically, an essential element in our partnership. Mauricio also emphasises the manual harvesting of the coffee cherries only when they reach perfect ripeness. This harvesting approach ensures the coffee's high quality and unique taste.
