Moises Chaguala is a third-generation coffee producer with over 25 years of experience. He and his family live and farm coffee on Finca El Recuerdo and own and operate Finca La Maria. They’re focused on specialty coffee production and are working on improving their coffee quality to produce more specialty microlots. Their farm’s high altitude of 1,750 meters above sea level creates the ideal conditions to cultivate sweet, dense cherry. Moises has been producing specialty coffee in 2013 when he received Pink Bourbon seedlings and was encouraged to plant them. The variety, a cross between Red and Yellow Bourbon has all the cup potential of its Bourbon parents and is in high demand. Some reports indicate that Pink Bourbon has a higher sugar content, mainly glucose, leading to a sweeter coffee. Moises and his family selectively handpick ripe red cherry and process coffee on their farm. After sorting, cherry is laid to dry. Moises and his family rake cherry frequently to ensure even drying.
