ABOUT MIRAFLORES ESPRESSO

Putting His Community On The Map

Carlos' grandparents were the first in his family to start growing coffee plants. At the time, they had to water every plant individually, because there was no shade at all. His own farm is in the middle of a pine forest. The shade guarantees a slower and more homogeneous ripening process. Carlos is certain that his grandparents would have thought him crazy. Back then, they were convinced that coffee couldn’t grow under a much larger tree!

The climate is perfect year round under the cool trees, and working the land helps to calm Carlos' mind, straighten his thoughts, or simply dream away while picking berries or cleaning the finca. As one of the founders of Cafesmo and current president of the member committee Carlos spends much of his time organising Cafesmo and seeking ways to help it grow. Sometimes, he receives foreign visitors who want to work with them, or a team from the Fair Trade or Organic organisations, who come to audit and inspect his organisation and random member farms.

"If it weren’t for Cafesmo, none of us would be able to get certifications, or to work directly with importers and roasters from faraway lands."
