About this Specialty Coffee
For Hernan Eguigeren coffee has become a family tradition. His father started growing commercial coffee in 1954, over the years he wanted to share this love for coffee, he planted in 1980 but commercially coffee making wasn't profitable.
In 2017, coffee production resume this time focusing in specialty coffee. They bet on the plantation of specialty coffee which made it possible to obtain differentiated prices at the national and international level.
The entire farm sits on 60 hectares of land of which 9 are currently planted with coffee. The varieties planted including Sidra, Geisha, SL28, Typica Mejorado, Yellow Catuai and Catarrh.
Santa Gertrudis is a fully equipped wet and dry mill, able to process its own coffee production as well as provide support and opportunity to neighbouring coffee producers. Jose Luis has supported the connection of many highly talented coffee producers who are focused on intentional coffees and regenerative agricultural practices.
