More about Robin Gutierrez and Finca El Huerto:
Robin has four lots in Agua Dulce. Having worked in coffee full time since he was 13, Robin worked the land alongside his father and knew from a young age coffee would be his passion.
Robin's grandfather had begun working in coffee 50 years prior and left the farm to Robin’s father. Robin purchased the lots of Reforma and Los Claveles from his father. Robin created Capulines as a blend of the best selection of Reforma and Los Claveles, thinking it would yield even sweeter, more aromatic coffees. He was right. It's a lot aptly named, as Capulines means “Mexican Black Cherry”, a small, sweet, and very rare fruit. He went on to plant El Huerto as a continuation of the "best producing and cupping" plants from his other three micro lots. The succession of the micro lots are La Reforma, then Capulines, then Claveles and finally El Huerto. They are not geographically connected, and it's a 40 minute truck drive from the farthest lot to the drying patio.
