Carolyn Saraceni Castillo inherited her 15-hectare farm from her father, who has been helping her develop and improve the farm over the last eight years. For Carolyn, coffee equals happiness. The farm has been passed down from her grandfather to her, and she is proud to continue the family legacy, bringing it into the 21st century.

12 of the 15 hectares are planted with 50,000 Catuai coffee trees. She and her father oversee all of the work on the farm, which is done by hand. They employ members of the indigenous community, the Ngöbe-Buglé, to help them with the harvest, which runs from November to March, and general crop maintenance year-round. Carolyn loves the way we process her coffee and is looking forward to an exclusive relationship with us.
