Producer Pedro Flores smiling and holding yellow coffee cherries with both hands in his farm. Overlay letter that reads

Pedro Flores’ farm is in the small colonia of Villa Rosario, a short drive east of Caranavi. He’s part of the Sol De La Mañana project, run by the Rodriguez family, that provides training in coffee agronomy to small producers. Through this, he’s learnt to replant his land and manage his coffee plants more methodically to get both quality and consistency.

To ensure only the very ripest coffee cherries are picked, it's not uncommon for producers in the Sol De La Mañana program to do 7 or 8 harvesting passes across their plants, many more than producers in other parts of the world do. This is very labour intensive and yields smaller amounts each pass, but ensures great quality. The downside is that for each delivery of cherries from the Sol De La Mañana producers in Bolinda, the lots are often too tiny to process separately and so instead, deliveries from all the producers are combined and processed together.
