The small 4 hectare El Sapo farm in the Tarqui mountains belongs to Maria Berlinda Nuñez and her family. When Berlinda’s husband inherited the farm, it was producing only beans and peas, but they had a dream of producing coffee. They were told the region doesn’t have the right climate for growing coffee, but they persisted, planted 1000 caturra trees, and now produce award-winning coffees.
