Earlier this year we visited Julio after being so impressed with his coffees last season. His farm is situated across from an active volcano that nourishes the sandy soil. We sat on his porch sipping rum, watching Fuego erupt into the night, talking about his vision & working together with his son who is also barista. On FILTER we have a washed Red Bourbon and for ESPRESSO, a great example of a well processed Caturra, we also made a tote bag celebrating Caturra which is available in our webshop.

Go to our vision page for a short film of our visit.
