About the Grower: Ernesto Vásquez has a 3.5-acre farm called El Durazno in the community of Aguanqueterique. In prior years, Ernesto has sold his coffee in cherry to the local middleman. For the last several years he has been working with Catracha Coffee. During this time, he has improved his farm management practices using lime to control the pH of his soil, fertilizing with organic compost, and spraying organic fungicides to control levels of leaf rust. These actions have improved the health of his farm and the quality of his coffee production. Ernesto has learned to process coffee using his own micro-mill so that he can depulp, ferment and dry his coffee before delivering it to Catracha Coffee.
