ABOUT THE FARM

The Polidoro plot is called Romerillo because it is a tree that grows in abundance in this area and which provides shade to the coffee trees. Polidoro has been associated with Coopagro for three years, he chose to work with them because their way of working goes hand in hand with his ideals. He bets a lot on quality to have a coffee that improves each season, develops its aromas and flavors. It favors an environment-friendly system. “From the moment you choose to work the land, you do everything to avoid an environmental imbalance. When I understood this, I grew up and I now have organic and fair trade certifications. This year, we will put in place African beds for drying and we are always working to be better every day.

With every coffee you drink - through Your Coffee Counts - we invest in financing, research and education for coffee farmers worldwide.
