This coffee is sourced from Mario Rolando Reyes Pineda at his farm La Bendición in the village of La Alianza, Santa Bárbara. Mario is a first-generation coffee producer. Since purchasing his coffee finca from a colleague back in 1993, he has been revamping the finca, removing the original coffee varieties to plant specialty coffee varieties to improve quality and profitability. In addition to planting varieties, Mario has made improvements to his washing and fermentation stations, as well as constructed a solar drier.
