Grown by Don José Bernabé, a first generation coffee producer from a large family of farmers cultivating other crops. In fact, he himself grows lemons, bananas, oranges, and avocados on the farm, even calling his farm the Lemon Grove (Finca El Limonar). Hovering around a very spry eighty years old, he manages his steep ridgeline farm with the support of his son José Martinez.

In the seventies, José Bernabé Martinez was picking coffee at another farm called Malacatio. When his mother died in 1980, he inherited a bit of land and began planting coffee himself. Over many years as prices improved, he turned profits to purchasing neighboring lots. He has had the pride of teaching his children everything he knows about coffee and farming, and they now support the harvest.
