Coffee Info

When it comes to producing coffee, El Hato is at the bottom of the temperature range. Despite these conditions, Gustavo and other area farmers are still able to produce delicious coffees at such high altitudes. In typical growing climates, "washed" or "wet" processed coffee is picked and left to ferment for 24 hours. Due to the cold temperature of the water he uses to process his coffee, Gustavo can mix different days of picking and leave coffee fermenting longer.
