Region: Santa Barbara, El Cedral
Producer: Crecencio Izaguirre
Harvest: March 2015
Altitude: 1600 masl
Crecencio Izaguirre's farm Santa Maria is only 0.7 hectares and so does not produce any large quantities of coffee. But what it lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. The farm is named after Crecencio’s mother Maria and the whole family is involved in the farming process. This is the fourth season Per roasts coffee from Crecencio’s farm, which makes it his longest collaboration.
