They are third generation coffee growers who are dedicated to producing and perfecting high quality coffees, They produce differentiated coffees with high quality standards backed by responsible production techniques, focused on origin traceability innovation and tradition.
Maypop is another one of the extremely unique coffees we have come across, due to the unique honey culturing processing method utilized by Andrés Quiceno at La Riviera.
The honey culturing process involves using fermentation starters and the unique natural flavors that come from fruits and aromatic plants.
New sensory profiles have been developed by mixed fermentations between the starters and traditional coffee fermentation processes.
