This is the second year we purchase for the Ovalle. Last year we purchased two of their geisha and other smaller lots. The quality encouraged us to commit to a larger lot and make it our milk espresso selection for the season.
Finca El Oregano’s name derives from the times when... surprise, oregano plants were cultivated there. To this day, as you stroll through the coffee trees, you may come across the wild herb. To get there you have to take this one road and admire surroundings that’ll remind you of an African savanna. Once you get to the center of the farm, you’ll enjoy the V-shaped valley. On its wall, there’s a main plantation looking down on the local river.
Diana and Hector have built an irrigation system that makes it possible to utilize water from this river. Each row of coffee trees is fitted with a tube that delivers water to the trees. Diana and Hector are an example of a new approach to coffee production. Their farms and management style are focused on maximum efficiency and sustainability.
We are super happy to work with the Ovalle, being able to participate and be the last actors in a model that not only rewards the highest quality but takes care of nature and strives to be part of a sustainable activity.
This coffee is like a chocolate truffle with cherry and caramel. Perfect for a cappuccino with a little more complexity.
