Welcome to the Bellavista farm! Luis Nuñez is 42 years old and since childhood has worked in agriculture and coffee production. His knowledge of coffee and a small lot was the inheritance left by his father. Thanks to his effort and work he got his farm and everything he has until today. He lives on the estate with his wife Erika and their two daughters, Victoria and Monica. They help with housework and various daily farm chores.
“My coffee is different because it’s well managed, it’s of good quality and the land where it’s produced has good nutrients and no chemical.”
Its farm is home to mules, cows, chickens, dogs, cats, ñeques, armadillos and bird diversity. In addition, it has its own garden with Guamo trees, onion, tomato, yucca and banana.
The Honey Process begins with a quality filter that allows us to remove the floater coffee cherries from the process. From here, the cherries will start the de-pulping stage and will pass through a short fermentation of 24 hours in sealed tanks, before moving to the drying stage. In the drying stage, the coffee will rest in African-style raised beds for over 20 days. Finally, parchment coffee will pass through our dry milling and hand sorting stage.
The Natural Process begins with a pre-fermentation stage of 24 hours at the receival station. From here, the cherries will be moved to the drying stage; coffee will be placed in African-style raised beds for over 25 days and will be racked and rotated every 4 hours. Due to the levels of sugar and moisture, the first days will be crucial to avoid microbial activity prolongation. Finally, parchment coffee will pass through our dry milling and hand sorting stage.
