New Season Gloria is here!
Sweet and spice-y and all things nice-y: your girl Gloria is giving us life-y.
The perfect coffee heading towards chillier times. This wonderfully warming coffee with the taste of sweet poached pear and chewy, fudgy caramel. From producer, Gloria Henriquez, the hardworking and entrepreneurial owner of Finca Los Nances. Gloria has overcome many difficulties and used her wealth of experience to diversify her farm and produce excellent micro-lots alongside her beloved free-range chickens!
Finca Los Nances is only a small operation of just under one hectare, but Gloria has produced high-valued micro-lots with the help of Cafesmo. That convinced her that this is the path she wants to take by building trusting relationships and working closely with one or two roasters. We are incredibly grateful to be one of them.
Gloria is also part of the brand new Women's Association established by Cafesmo, we can't wait to see what the women achieve together.
Gloria Henriquez is a 4th generation coffee producer and owner of FTO certified farm Los Nances. She has a wealth of experience working on coffee farms having first started by watching her grandparents work on their farm as a child.
“The new generation of coffee growers laugh at me when I tell them about the way we worked in the old days, but I see my experience and wealth of knowledge, even if from another era, as an advantage" Gloria says.
In 2013, disaster struck when her farm was ruthlessly hit by rust. Gloria was close to despair. With no income and very little money for food, she went into debt. Little by little she pulled herself out of that deep hole and decided to diversify. Nowadays she holds over 100 free-range, chemical-free chickens, which she sells to eateries and her local community. A small but reliable source of income to supplement her coffee production.
