Product Description

Importer: Onyx Coffee

 

Robin has four lots in Agua Dulce (same valley as our farm - Finca Vista Hermosa), he is our neighbor just to the south, and has amazing coffees! His first two lots that he purchased were Reforma and Los Claveles. Capulines comes from the best selection of those two lots and was planted because he thought it would yield even sweeter coffee. He called the lot Capulines which means “Mexican Black Cherry” because they are small, sweet, and rare. Robin went on to plant El Huerto as a continuation of the "best producing and cupping" plants from his other three micro lots.

Robin has four lots in Agua Dulce (same valley as our farm - Finca Vista Hermosa), he is our neighbor just to the south, and has amazing coffees! We met Robin through his help transporting our coffee as a driver.

His first two lots that he inherited were La Reforma and Los Claveles. Robin's grandfather had begun working in coffee 50 years before, and left the farm to Robin’s father. Robin purchased the lots of Reforma and Los Claveles from his dad. Robin "created" Capulines as it comes from the best selection of Reforma and Los Claveles, thinking it would yield even sweeter, more aromatic coffees. He was right. It's a lot aptly named, as Capulines means “Mexican Black Cherry”, a small, sweet, and very rare fruit. He went on to plant El Huerto as a continuation of the "best producing and cupping" plants from his other three micro lots.

When he was 13 years old Robin left school to work in coffee because he knew that was his passion, working alongside his father. The succession of the micro lots are La Reforma, then Capulines, then Claveles and finally El Huerto. They are not geographically connected. Robin has to drive 40 minutes via truck from his furthest lot to the drying patios.
