Mario Guerrero started his farm from cero six years ago and it is until the last harvest that he was able to make a good harvest, something that satisfies him because he has put a lot of work and love into his farm. He used to work only in carpentry but now he is more focused on agriculture and besides coffee he also harvests honey inside the farm.
The farm is located in Pocaron, Palanda, Zamora Chinchipe, Ecuador. Located in a beautiful forest area surrounded by many native trees at a height of 1500 to 1700 masl, the harvest season in this part of South America begins in the month of June and ends in October.
Mario's coffee is a mixture of three different varieties which create a unique combination.
Mario harvest and pulp the coffee at the farm and bring the coffee to be fermented and washed at his house one hour away from the farm where he also dry the coffee in African beds.
For us at SCW, it is a pleasure to be able to work with people as serious and passionate in their work as Mario Guerrero, who at the same time is very happy to be able to sell his coffee directly to us.
