More about Mas Moreno Coffee:
This coffees were harvested by the Moreno family which consist of farms from various family members including Brothers Danny, Miguel, Jesus, Mario, and their father, Daniel.The Moreno family patriarch, Daniel Moreno, started coffee farming in 1963 with the purchase of El Campo, a plantation that is still in production and is increasingly being managed amongst his seven sons: Miguel, Mario, Jesus, Gerardo, Olvin, Mabel and Danny. Together the brothers, their father and these days the even younger generation of Moreno family members have become somewhat of a coffee farming dynasty in Santa Barbara, inspiring many of their neighbours and beyond to do specialty coffee.
It takes a unique kind of person to come from a humble background—as the Morenos have—and make coffee cultivation a sustainable business for your family. It is not typically smallholder producers with family histories of small-scale agriculture that are the most successful coffee farmers and this is because it is incredibly challenging to first, consistently cultivate and produce the highest quality coffee and have access to a loyal customer base, and then on top of this, have the
education and knowledge to speak quality at the same level as the buyer. The Morenos are in this special category of coffee producer and as with any other success story, their sustained top position requires a mixture of ambition, long-term
planning, understanding what their market is looking for, and constant reevaluation and tweaking of agronomic, harvesting and processing techniques.
As the family itself continues to evolve, with the younger generation growing up and taking on more responsibility over the coffee activities, the Morenos’ commitment to their buyers remains steadfastly loyal and forward-looking.
This is the 3rd year we buy from the Moreno Family, previously from Danny and Miguel.
