Farmer Overview:

Jorge Isaac Hernandez has been a member with the cooperative Aruco since 2016 and has been producing specialty micro lots since 2017. Back in 2013 he suffered heavily with the outbreak of leaf rust that swept Central America. This lead to Jorge beginning a process of renovation on the farm and planting new more rust resistant varietals like Obata, Paraninema and Icatu. 

The mill is at 800masl which gives a drier more stable climate to dry the coffee compared to up at the farms where the weather can be less predictable. Once at the mill the cherry is cleaned and washed and then floated to remove any immatures. This coffee is then taken to the drying beds where it is dried for 20 - 30 days and turned hourly on the drying beds.
