Santa Isabel grabs your attention with a vibrant, juicy raspberry sparkle and finishes nicely with sweet honey notes that linger. Its thick stone fruit sweetness is something you've got to try for yourself, but trust us when we say, it won't disappoint.
We have enjoyed working with Luis "Wicho" Valdez III for several years. Wicho actively chose to return to the Valdez family farm, which has been in the family for almost 150 years, and get involved in coffee farming. He has successfully made it into an operation known for excellent practices and the highest quality coffees. His recent work involves farming practices that use shade and specific pruning schedules to give each tree the appropriate amount of light and air to grow to its fullest possible production. Wicho doesn't just like coffee farming, “We really, really love coffee. That’s what we do.”
