Carmen Gagnay is a coffee producer who owns La Fortaleza, a 4-hectare farm with 3 hectares planted in coffee, primarily Bourbon and Sidra varieties. Carmen used to work at Nestlé, but now she and her son have committed themselves to growing specialty coffee. Among the coffee trees, there are also other plants, such as yuca, beans, corn, and sugar cane.
Microlots from Ecuador are sourced from independent specialty-coffee farmers and represent the highest quality and the highest level of traceability available.
