5 years ago, Finca Indera was just an empty pasture for cattle to graze. Manuel was not one to easy into his transition to coffee farming. He planted most of his land to coffee and planted parts with timber and fruit trees and bananas to create a diversified production system. After planting out the land, he added an irrigation system and electricity to the farm. Currently, Manuel cultivates five exotic varieties of coffee. Finca Indera is alive with a diversity of flora, fauna, and wild animal life. This lot we have on for November is his Honey Geisha. Cherries were picked in the afternoon at 22 degrees brix upwards and left in a grain pro sack until morning. The coffee is then pulped and placed on African beds to dry under shade until it reaches 10.5% humidity.
