Milk Chocolate, caramelised almonds, dark cherries

Rodolfo and Reina are the proud owners of the La Pila farm. Rodolfo has been in the coffee industry most of his life. When he was young he used to work on farms as a coffee picker to earn money. And when he was 25 years old, he inherited a plot of land from his father so that he could start his own farm business. Little by little he managed to make steps ahead, increase the volume of his coffee and invest in another plot of land.

Rodolfo is very eager to improve the practices on his farm, to keep learning and innovating. He’d like to have a soil analysis done at his farm so to optimise the root and foliar systems of his plants with adequate nutrition. He also plans to keep investing in the processing area. He came up with a genius system to depulp the coffee with a bicycle!

Rodolfo’s excitement is contagious, his neighbours want to join in. So this season he coordinated the collection of cherries every afternoon at his farm La Pila so he could get his neighbours involved as well. The result of this collaboration is this wonderful lot.
