The Ventura family have been growing coffee for over five generations. The coffee farming tradition began when their grandfather started growing coffee in 1894, at a farm called Finca Rabanales. Over a hundred years later in 2012, the family purchased Finca El Durazno. Although the Ventura family have been coffee farming for over 120 years, the farm is very young as coffee was planted during the 2013-2014 harvest, with the first production harvest taking place in 2018. During the harvest, the freshly picked and sorted coffee is loaded into a truck and taken to Finca Rabanales for processing. The truck arrives around 1-2 am, and the cherries rest over night. At 7 am, the coffee is immediately pulped, and passed through a demucilager to remove the excess mucilage. The freshly washed coffee parchment then moves to the patio via a channel. Then the coffee is dried in the sun for an average of 8 to 13 days until the perfect moisture level is reached
