The farm is managed by Karen and her brother Jose. Their father, Adolfo, founded Cafe Kapeu, a company that supports producers in processing and selling their coffees. Karen is a 0 grader and head of quality control in the company. It is her job to tell them if there are any practices that can be improved based on the quality of their cup. 

It began with a strict harvesting of fully ripe cherries that met the requirements of as special coffee which are: healthy cherries, optimum ripeness state, and measurement of brix degrees. Having the desired coffee quality, the cherries are passed through a washing area to eliminate any type of contamination that could affect the quality we are looking for. 

Once the coffee is ready, it goes to the fermentation area for a period if 65 hours. It is then pulped completely dry and taken to the washing area to remove the remaining amount of mucilage that remains in the bean. It then goes to the drying area for approximately 15 days until reaching the desired moisture percentage.
