narrative: This high-altitude coffee is graced by the gentle weather of the Central Valley coffee zone. Local farmers care for their land and a diversity of crops surrounding Sircof. Many of these farms border protected forest areas, providing a positive co-existence between sustainable farming and a prospering environment. Sircof specialty coffee starts with a careful collection of the ripe Arabica beans, immediately processed in the artisan wet mill right on their farm.Risking all of their savings, Marco Oviedo faced a terrifying truth. His family coffee farm could not survive if they continued to operate as they had for the prior two generations. Marcos and his wife decided to build a micro mill. With more control of the processing and production chain, they can yield the best possible quality. Marcos found a way to improve their production and cupping scores so they could sell coffee at a fair price and save the family farm.  This coffee was sourced by Jensen, our former roaster in spring 2019.  Cafe con Amor, a farmer owned exporter and importer brought this coffee to the state in their efforts to connect small family run farms near their farm with specialty roasters.
