They produce exceptional quality coffee and leave a part of their farms in their natural forest state to protect the spring water that bubbles to the surface. They are at such a high altitude that their coffee is harvested a full two months after the rest of the country's coffee as a result of the colder climate and increased cloud coverage in their farms' microclimate. The coffee beans slow maturity allows them to collect more nutrients, producing more complex cupping notes.
