Blend Component: Los Capulines

In the year 1850, Olivio’s grandfather planted the first coffee tree and Finca Villatoro was offcially born. Almost a century later, in 1940, Olivio decided to change the name of the farm with the objective of reflecting the essence of the region in a better way. He named it Los Capulines, honoring a native species of trees commonly grown in the farm and its surroundings. Olivio Villatoro, a 91-year-old man, is the one and only responsible for the management, supervision and daily labours of the farm. His grandson, Eduardo Herrera Villatoro, discovered the specialty coffee market one year ago, and after selling conventional coffee for many decades and noticing the high potential of the coffee, he started
the process of convincing his grandfather to improve their harvest and post-harvest practices. This led to an amazing, bright, balanced coffee, but most important, reflects the hard work and persistence of four generations.
