From a young age Wilberto Yánez worked on his family farm, Finca El Eden, located 4700-4800 feet above sea level. His father and uncles taught him the importance of organic growing and to be conscious of the ecological impact his coffee and growing practices would have. Yánez meticulously cared for the land gifted to him by his father, with the philosophy that it is the producer’s responsibility to maintain the highest quality from the beginning of a coffee plant’s life through to the drying of the grain. He became a member of COMSA, a cooperative Blue State Coffee has worked with for many years, and won first place in the competition of Café de la Region DO Marcala, as part of the celebration of the XII Marcala Coffee Culture Festival 2018. Yanez demonstrates how discipline and a dedication to positive ecological practices can make all the difference. Blue State Coffee is excited to offer this outstanding natural process microlot for the first time!
