Altitude: 1,800 - 2,200 meters above sea level

Coffee is not just a hobby or a career for David Rodriguez Sr., it is a way of life. From an early age he learned how to cultivate coffee in a traditional, natural and sustainable way from his father Don Laureano Rodriguez. As a child, his fondest memories are running among thousands of coffee plants. It was here that he succumbed to the magic of both the process and product of coffee farming. From the aroma of damp earth and dry grasses to the euphoria of that first sip, the spell put on the senses is undeniable. It wasn’t long until he dreamt of having a coffee farm of his own. A lifetime of dedication and hard work has made that dream a reality. Three generations of coffee farmers lovingly and artfully tending their craft has evolved into an established business founded in integrity and sustainable craftsmanship. As this business expands David feels driven to give back to the community that has provided the nurturing environment in which his business has been allowed to prosper. His farm provides employment opportunities for local residents and ensures fair and equal treatment of all collaborators and partners. David Rodriguez is incredibly proud of his community for coming together to create an outstanding team composed of not just employees and coffee producers, but of cafes, hotels, offices, restaurants, and specialty markets. Together these outstanding people ensure every day that this work is carried out with absolute quality and care. It is because of this tireless teamwork and consideration that he went from a boy running through thousands of coffee plants daydreaming of a farm of his own, to creating and sharing the unique magic of coffee. When it comes to improving a community’s quality of life, we recognize the importance of dental care. Dental care for children specifically can be preventative and caters to forming healthy habits that can carry on throughout their adult lives. Our annual dental day provides 100 children with dental cleaning, free of charge.
