We have visited more than a few farms and we can vouch for the fact that Amparo Maya and her farm are truly something special. There’s a lot to appreciate about her farm, La Finca Las Mangas: a grove of avocado trees, citrus trees of all varieties, a coffee roasting room complete with packaging equipment, and some of the cutest (and most well cared for) dogs on earth. But all of that is second to the magically peaceful energy that permeates the space. Amparo’s commitment to and connection with the earth are a palpable force. This dedication and connection to the earth are reflected in her coffee and are her guiding principals. We visited to learn about her and her coffee, but we walked away inspired and awed by her words of wisdom.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
