Edwin Cota is the son of Antonio Domingo Cota, a farmer we've been working with for many years. Our owner, Bob Garver, had the pleasure of meeting Antonio Domingo Cota and visiting his 3 hectare farm in February 2017. Antonio, 65 years old, has been a coffee farmer his whole life, and now Edwin has followed suit.
In 2018, a team from Bard and Wicked Joe, visited the cooperative and led a multi-day workshop. This workshop covered everything from sample-roasting, cupping, and brewing coffee. For the first time, Antonio and many of his other farmer neighbors, were able to taste their own coffee. It was an amazing experience to say the least. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this region, and specifically these farmers.
We process all of our orders on Mondays to ship out that same week. Any orders placed after Monday will be roasted and shipped out the following week.
