Many past Cup Of Excellence auction lots come from ASOPROAAA.
Emilio Jimenez Castro is the sole owner of this incredible farm and produces a very small number of sacks per year. We loved the idea of helping a small, unique and interesting farm such as his to shine though!
He inherited 6 Hectares from his father that is mainly used for cattle. He later bought a further 7 hectares at the higher altitude of 1800m where he produces coffee interspersed with citrus, avocado and other fruit.The result is 3 separate micro lots all from the same section of his farm.The coffees were picked in the same week and delivered daily to make up the lot volumes for the final delivery.
Ideal for Filter, Cafetiere, Aeropress and Espresso.
