Fausto did not own coffee farm back then, his uncle offer happened to own coffee offer Fausto to plant 1 hectare farm with Sidra coffee varietal. He owned few kettles and sell 5 cows to invest growing his coffee farm. His effort paid off when his Sidra coffee produce an excellent quality which attract lots of international coffee buyer.

How To Brew
We use V60 whenever we want add a little 'twist'/complexity flavors. Brewing fully washes is quite easy and straight forward. We are using our common 3 pours and medium grind size since we know this is pretty much standard brew for our coffee. One thing that we made an adjustment is by reducing brewing time to 2.45 min. Shorter brewing time mean fast extraction and it is good if we are using medium grind size. The result sweet peach and floral cup. In between you can taste persimmon fruits notes and creamy cereal texture. We love how sweet peach coffee pairing with comfort taste note like persimmon and floral aroma make this coffee such a crowd pleaser.
