This is the second harvest ever for Ivan and his wife Roseanne, who inherited a soy farm from Roseanne's father Weder in 2015. Ivan had previously worked as an engineer for a German company producing car parts, and intends to bring the same strict principles to his new coffee plants. Their focus is specialty coffee, and prior to planting they did their homework. It's paid off.
Layered, full-bodied, and complex. Big tropical fruit up front with bright twinkling kiwi acidity, followed by a vanilla finish.
