Cupping Coffees at the IHCAFE Lab, Marcala

Nancy Hernandez Contreras of Finca Jasmin and Aroma Cafe. Nancy and Arturo put me up for the week and introduced me to friends, farmers and favorite coffees. Along with owning her own cafe and roaster, she also grows some of the finest coffee I have ever tasted, and she's served on the COE panel the last several years. One of my favorite parts of her operation is that she roasts and provides nuanced feedback along with harvesting / processing recommendations to anyone from Marcala who gives her samples.
