The farm is in hands of the Rodriguez – Luethje Family since 1959.
The initial road was built around 1965 to connect the farm with the town Union Juarez. Years of hard work had to be invested to rebuild the plantation and to modernize the wet and dry milling facilities. Nowadays the farm management takes care of weed control in a mainly manual way to protect the environment and the same goes for the shade management.
Muxbal recognizes that it is only with enough beneficial sun that they will get the optimum quantity and quality of the beans.
It is only with educated and well-prepared staff that all things work smoothly, from the picking of the ripe cherries, to the proper wet and dry process and many other activities required on the farm. Besides the housing and sanitary facilities, there is a school, a childcare nursery and a medical facility on the farm. Finca Muxbal is RFA certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria.
The land of the farm Serra das Araras is operated by Paulo Roberto Cintra Coelho. The coffee here was first planted in the 1960s and has been maintained ever since. This coffee is excellent for an espresso extraction for its high sweetness and good balance in milk beverages.
Dimtu Tero is stretched over 151ha land in the Odo Shakiso district, where the natural environment is favorable to produce some of the best coffees of Ethiopia. As you might already know, Ethiopia is thought to be the homeland of the arabica coffee, and coffees from there are really one of our favorites. They have a very distinct, difficult-to-confuse flavor of bergamot and magic.
Coffee Kids is a beautiful project from Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung for sustaining and helping young coffee farmers to stay in business, give them all the necessary knowledge to grow better coffee and live a better life. It is a way of giving the necessary skills to the young people for becoming entrepreneurs in the coffee community.
This coffee from Huila makes for a very balanced espresso with chocolatey notes, but with a pleasant acidity making the cup more bright. Still the acidity is not that dominant, so it will work perfectly well as an espresso base in milk beverages.
