For more than four decades, the Salazar Family has been selling their coffee to coffee cooperatives. However, in 2018 the instability of the commercial market motivated them to rethink their strategy and they decided to explore the international market and connected with our partner 100LIBRAS. Although they were new to us, we discovered the Salazar family’s absolutely fantastic coffee on a blind cupping table and in our opinion they are producing one of the greatest and most aromatic Caturra's and SL28, we've tasted in West Valley. With their recent success, Cristian invested in a micro mill for the farm, which we are planning to help develop before the upcoming harvest.
about the coffee.
Last year the Salazar family produced a wide variety of different coffees such as Caturra, Catuaí, Villalobos, SL28 and Gesha reaching excellent results in quality and appreciation all over the world at the cupping tables. Due to the last year pandemic, this harvest will be more strategic, processing coffees confirmed by us. We are aiming to purchase SL28 and Caturra again next year.
