We are so glad to work together with Simeon Palacios. We have bought his coffee in two years a row and absolutely love this sweet fruity coffee. Our head Roaster, Silja, visited at the El Naranjo Farm this year during the harvest time, and met the whole family. Simeon and his wife Alvina Castillo are true coffee professionals.
Ever since Simeon was a young boy he enjoyed to work on the farm and he always liked the idea of having his own land and farm on it. Twenty years ago, he got the opportunity to buy his first plot. It took him 5 years to really start his coffee plantation, as he had to save little by little and invest in the land first. Simeon loves the idea of experimenting on his farm but emphasises that the natural environment is always critical in this.
There is no way of innovating without taking care of the surroundings. Their plans for the near future is to improve the fermentation tanks and enhance the overall infrastructure at the farm.
We roast and ship the coffees from Tuesday to Thursday. Please give your order by Tuesday to get your coffee shipped on the same week.
