About the Producer
Alex Ponce has been learning about coffee since childhood, from working on his father's farm.
When he turned 19, he started working in a clothing factory where he continued to work for nine years. In 2013, Alex's uncle proposed to sell him a property in Cabañas, La Paz (where his family originates). He purchased the property with all his factory work savings, and the following year he quit the factory, and started planting coffee on the property. His dad currently lives on the farm with the family and helps Alex to manage the farm when he's not there.
Alex has expanded his drying station this year making more raised beds, to increase drying space during cloudy days, or when there is less sun during the harvest season.
This is a Honey processed lot. Ripe cherries are de-pulped at the wet mill on the same day as picking and then dried on raised beds until the required moisture/humidity is achieved. Beans are raked every 30 mins while drying and hand-sorted to remove defective beans.
