Visiting Finca Santa Rita

We recently wrote a review of a coffee from Cuvee Coffee, a roaster out of Spicewood, Texas. The coffee we discussed was the El Salvador Santa Rita Peaberry. Mike McKim, the owner of Cuvee Coffee, just got back from a trip to Finca Santa Rita, the very farm where the coffee came from, and the company sent us this video documenting the experience.

The tour of the farm and the philosophy of the growers shows what goes into just one cup of coffee. The passion of Jose Antonio Salaverria in the production quality and standards of processing on this farm are astounding. We want to meet him in person now, and after this video, you may want to, too.
