It is located in the Fraijanes Plateau region, close to Pacaya Volcano, which is constantly fertilizes the land with ashes rich in minerals. The soil is volcanic which creates a distinctive body to the cup. The altitude is from 1,600 to 1,650 masl and the bean varieties are Bourbon and Catuai, grown under shade.
Pablo and his Wife, Eva, run a very impressive farm and represent the innovative and forward-thinking coffee farmers of today. It is remarkable to see how their investments and efforts from all the farm workers, is reflected in the quality of the coffee produced.
