If we were to describe any of our single origins as an ‘omni-roast’, this would be it. Deliciously creamy as an espresso yet delicate and fruity as a filter. An excellent all-rounder with a lingering sweet finish.

Roberto Cano is the owner of Las Galeras farm. His father gave him the plot of land. At that time, it was fully abandoned, but together they decided to start planting coffee and revive the plantation. land from his father. "Up to date we still work hard to improve the farm, we have been producing for around 30 years," he says. As farmers we depend on our land and our produce. However, the prices of coffee have been discouraging and that is why we are now mainly focusing on the quality of our product."

Roberto is always busy with farm maintenance throughout the year; with cleaning, cutting weeds with a machete, pruning, planting, fertilizing (2 times per year), managing shade, and controlling pests and diseases, for example. In the harvest season, the mature cherries are selectively picked. Then these are pulped on the same day in well-calibrated pulpers, the beans are then fermented for 2 days and washed with clean water and sun dried on cement patios.
