Coffee has been in Francis Melgar’s family for four generations.
His farm, 'Finca El Emperador', is named after his father who was nicknamed “The Emperor” by the workers at the farm.
Currently the Chairman of the board at the Capucas cooperative, Francis spent a number of years away from coffee in the construction industry before inheriting the farm in the middle of a coffee rust disease crisis. He set to work renovating the farm, removing the old diseased plants and planting rust resistant varietals like Parainema and Obatā.
He also started growing plants in rows two metres apart, a disease prevention method employed by farmers in Brazil.
This is a medium roast, giving you just the right side of fruitiness, with its Cranberry, Strawberry and Vanilla notes.
All our coffee is freshly roasted and sold either as whole beans, espresso or a cafetière grind. If you'd like a different grind, or have a question for us please get in touch and send us a message.
