Serious Coffee


Amado Martinez, Coffee Farmer, Miembro de Nulcio de Cafecultores de Monte Bonito, Dominican Republic. His farm has about 50/50 Typico and Caturra varietals and sits at an elevation of 1150 meters, which has been organic for the last 8 years.

I have known Amado since 2003 when we would be invited to the same meetings for the Fundacion Sur Futuro. He was always a vocal member of the community and speaks with such sincerity you know he is speaking the truth. Next week I will get to cup his coffee for the first time!
