Farm Info: Roberto “Chele” Dumont is one of a long line of coffee producers whose hard work and eye for detail shows in everything he does. Since taking over Malacara “B”, cup quality has improved tenfold.
The farm is located on the northern slope of the Santa Ana volcano, amidst a cloud covered, misty micro climate that creates the perfect environment in which to grow coffee.
Winners of three Cup of Excellence awards, Malacara “B” placed 13th in 2006, 20th in 2007 and in 2008 it took 5th place. Collecting such highly coveted recognition in such a short span shows the high quality of coffee that this estate produces. The shade canopy is mainly made up of Ingas and mountain trees such as cedar, walnut, gravileo and avocado, among others.
