The Montero family have been producing coffee for three generations. Grandpa Eli was the first, followed by his son Carlos and now his grandson Jacob. We’ve visited their farm La Pastora several times throughout the years and besides their beautiful coffee the family’s passion is what really stands out.
Last year Carlos visited us in Gothenburg which gave us the privilege to repay some of his family’s hospitality as well as spend a week together and show him how we work. 
Jacob is now 21 years old and is in charge of everything at the washing station. It’s hard work with long exhausting days and Jacob also studies economy at the university to keep improving the family business.
This particular lot from La Pastora is one that Jacob has been in charge of and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
