Description:Diego Lopez started his coffee business ten years ago after he bought his first farm Finca San Francisco. Diego had an interest for this farm because he wanted to experiment what he has learned as an agronomist. Yes, Diego Lopez is an agronomist and a coffee grower! At Finca San Francisco, Diego started with Caturra varietal with which he learned to control all kinds of plagues and disease. Diego learned more about coffee and managed to practice his knowledge as an agronomist.
The result has been the start of honey and natural processing and fermentation which gives to the cup a unique and flavorful fragrance and taste. Don Diego and his wife are developing their plantation with the idea of sustainable development linked to highly technical methods: tree nursery, diversity of shade trees (lemon, banana, guamo, and guava) and development of drying and fermentation techniques.
The secret to get this Yellow Honey is the open air sun-drying which Diego has mastered!
