Third generation coffee farmer Gerardo Peñalva brings organic practices as well as years of expertise to his coffee production in Marcala. His mission, he says, is to "produce specialty coffee, maintain agricultural practices friendly to the environment and focus on the issue of corporate social responsibility. To obtain quality coffee, we must be full of patience and above all enjoy the activity that involves the work of obtaining quality and maintain the vision that the farm is a family heritage that we must take care of well our children and grandchildren."

Relationship with De La Finca:

Three years ago, we met Gerardo as a member of a local co-op in Marcala and developed a close relationship with him and his son who sell us small quantities of some of their best lots. Working with us allows Gerardo and his son to develop relationships with their buyers and continue producing small, exceptional lots.
