After having been abandoned for some time, Andrés Sanchez took over the 5 hectare Finca Don Sigi following the death of his father. A young producer, Don Andrés saw an opportunity to revive his father’s farm and continue with the family tradition of producing coffee. He began by planting exotic varieties known for high quality potential such as gesha, pink bourbon, SL-28 and caturra. With the help of his mother, Don Andrés has achieved an incredible result with his honey processed gesha coffee!
“What we do today is completely different from what was done many years ago, but with good agricultural practices as a principle, a fundamental element of my father.” - Andrés Sanchez
This particular gesha coffee is harvested at the optimum point of maturation and taken to a floating tank for cleaning and separating floaters and pasilla (overripes). The cherries are added to drums and sealed to begin the fermentation process. After 72 hours, the cherries are pulled and set out to dry on raised beds in the large greenhouse on top of the farm. Drying takes approximately 7 to 9 days depending on weather conditions.
We are honored to have Don Andrés coffee here to share with you!
