Antonio and his wife, Eby Aracely Samayoa, put in a lot of effort to perfect their processing methods, aiming for the best product possible. Their commitment has elevated the quality of their coffee, and you can taste the results in the cup!

Antonio and Aracely meticulously process their coffee at their mill, located at 1200 meters, slightly lower than the farm. Only the ripest red cherries are chosen and undergo a controlled 14-hour fermentation. After soaking to remove impurities, the cherries are placed on raised beds for 20 days, turned four times daily for even drying. The final step, milling, takes place at their Fraijanes dry mill, overseen by an experienced team. This special lot is uniquely Aracely's coffee, a testament to her hard work over the years, and is sorted, bagged, and prepared for export, showcasing the dedication of this exceptional woman and the outstanding results of their collaborative efforts.

Looking ahead, Antonio is interested in advancing his farming techniques. He envisions offering assistance to fellow producers in the area who may struggle with the expenses of farm inputs. His goal is to make these supplies more accessible and affordable for all producers in the region.
