As a boy growing up on Finca El Rosario, Ricardo fell in love with coffee. He dreamed of one day following in the footsteps of his parents and owning El Rosario. His goal: to grow the family business and become a purveyor of high-quality coffee. Seven years ago that dream became a reality.
Under Ricardo, El Rosario flourished. Hard work and strong results enabled him to expand his operations. His focus was on finding high altitude farms with the potential to produce outstanding coffees. In 2014 Ricardo acquired Finca Buenos Aires, on Ilamatepec. At an average altitude of 1,200 to 1,350 meters above sea level and 1,900 to 2,200 mm of rainfall per year Buenos Aires was ideal coffee cultivation.
Finca Buenos Aires unlocked more capacity for Ricardo, but the real advantage came with the mill at Buenos Aires. Being able to mill his own coffee meant that Ricardo could control quality from roots to export and have greater control over the price his coffee fetched. The mill special- ized in natural, washed and honey process coffees and drying on raised beds with varying amounts of sun and shade.
