HISTORY

PROCESS

ON SPOT

Back in 1995, the Bayter Family rolled up their sleeves and dove headfirst into the agricultural scene at El Vergel farm. Avocado was their main squeeze, but when avocado prices took a nosedive in 2006, they knew it was time to shake things up. So, they tossed some coffee varieties into the mix – catimore, red, yellow caturra – and boom, a coffee empire was born! Fast forward to 2016, and with a little guidance from coffee guru Miguel Jimenez, they planted specialty coffee varieties, setting the stage for some serious coffee greatness. Then, in a stroke of genius, they embraced natural coffee processes in 2018, tinkering with fermentation control like mad scientists in a lab. And let's not forget their claim to fame – the Koji fermentation process, a game-changer in the green coffee game! Now, meet the dynamic trio behind the scenes: Martha Montenegro, along with her coffee-savvy partners Elias and Shady. Together, they're not just brewing coffee; they're brewing up a whole community revolution! Their mission? To blend tech magic with coffee passion and sprinkle a little extra joy into the lives of everyone at El Vergel Estate.

 Natural 

 Alright, buckle up for the Yellow Bourbon rollercoaster ride process: So, it's a classic Natural process! But with a twist – a snappy 48-hour fermentation period. Why, you ask? Well, it's all about striking that perfect balance between fruity flavors and keeping the sweetness level off the charts! Next stop on the journey? Drying town, population: our beloved coffee beans. They bask in the sun in mechanical silos for a solid 8 days, soaking up all that warm, toasty goodness. But wait, we're not done yet! After their sunbathing sesh, it's off to the Grain Pro bags for a cozy 35-day nap to stabilize before they're ready to hit the milling machines. That's what we call a coffee adventure!
