About the grower Translate

My name is Mario Ricardo Alarcón Melendez and I'm the 5th generation to oversee our family's farms, Finca El Recuerdo and Finca Monte de Oro. Due to my major (Mechanical Industrial Engineer), I took the duty to design a wet mill that would improve the coffee quality. Using the best machinery and with a simple and efficient process. Currently, the farm has more than 5 varietals of coffee and 3 different processes, having a wide variety of flavour for our worldwide clients. I took over the farms after my mother Ericka Melendez, who began managing the plantations in 1980 after my grandfather's passing. It's important to denote that she was the first lady in the area who administrated coffee farms with great success.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

Currencies
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.

2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:

Pay your coffee after its delivered in Europe. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.
