Anatulia and her husband, Anselmo, raised their 5 children at El Escondite. They are thankful of the coffee industry they are part of because it allowed them to provide for the family while simultaneously teaching their children the value of hardwork. Today, it has truly blossomed into a family business as the whole family now works at the farm.
While many producers are experimenting with new varietals, Anatulia loves the traditional caturra variety. She is lucky that El Escondite is located 2,000 meters above sea level which allows her to successfully grow this variety with good yields.
Blending tradition with technology, one of the family’s goals for next year is to upgrade the wet mill. We are hoping to help make this possible with the bonus we pay after the coffee is sold. With our high expectations of this nanolot, do not be surprised to be reading about their new wet mill next year!
