Third generation producer Renardo “Nayo” Ovalle Vides now runs the farms founded by his grandfather in 1958. Married to a certified Q-Grader, Nayo is dedicated to improving the quality and processing of his coffees, and this washed process is testament to his work. We tasted candied plums, nectarine, cranberry, and brown sugar, with a silky body and a pop of red apple acidity.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it. For exclusive weekly coffee suggestions from our panel, join Fellow Drops!
