More about Mario Moreno Coffee:
Don Daniel passed away in April, 2018, and his legacy is a coffee farming dynasty in Santa Barbara. His sons and their children consistently produce complex and unique coffees. Together, three generations of Morenos have inspired many of their neighbors and beyond to produce 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
As the family itself continues to evolve, with the younger generation taking on more
responsibility, the Moreno family’s commitment to their buyers remains steadfastly loyal and forward-looking. Mario and Miguel of El Filo, another coffee we carry, are brothers.
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 Mario, Danny and Miguel.
