More about this coffee:

Armando Gomez's grandfather, Eusebio Gomez, originally owned the farm. Armando Gomez started working with his grandfather when he was 23 years old. After his grandfather passed away, the farm stayed in the family and Armando continued to work on the farm. It wasn't until 1995 that Armando was able to start buying the farm from his uncles and aunts. Five years ago, he was finally able to purchase the farm. He has involved his entire family with producing coffee. Armando's wife, two sons, and two daughters help fertilize, plant, pick, and wash the coffee. According to Armando, "My mission for this year, with God's help, is to continue growing great quality coffee and my vision is to find a good client that will appreciate it and helps us grow."
