This coffee comes from Cafetos de Segovia micromill, a labor of love from the Albir family. Sisters and owners Ana and Martha Albir inherited their passion for coffee from their father, who bought a coffee farm in 1991 and tended to it with dedication until political strife forced his family to leave the country and cease the day-to-day operations of the farm. In 2007, Ana and Martha decided to take over the farm and continue their father's tradition. In 2015, they invested in a mill as well, and began their milling operation as Cafetos de Segovia in 2016, providing milling and exporting services not only for their own family farm but also for 11 nearby farms owned by friends and family.
This offering is a blend of Caturra variety lots from several different farms: Tierra Linda, El Naranjo, San José, and La Victoria, all of which work with Cafetos and the Albirs. These farms are all located within a municipality called La Laguna and are grown under shade in sandy loam soil. All of the coffee has been processed as Washed: After it's picked, it's depulped the same day before being fermented for 18–24 hours. It's then washed and dried on tarps or raised beds.
