Dionicio’s father bought the farm in the 1970’s and his mother currently lives there, along with a pulsing flock of various fowl—chickens and ducks, mostly—, some farm dogs, and various full time farm employees. Finca La Encañada is bordered by the beautiful Tonchima River and has 12 hectares planted to coffee. Dionicio also has a still for aguardiente (sugar cane liqueur) which we sampled during our recent visit, and an experimental farm for varieties native to the area.
Catalyst Trade is the sole buyer of Dionicio’s raw green coffee for the North American market, providing an exclusive offering for small batch roasters in the United States. We dream of nights we’ve spent under the velvet star-speckled sky on his farm, with cold local beer in our hand and beautiful roasted chicken in our bellies. It’s no wonder we’re stoked about our ongoing partnering with him and his plans for future experimentation, and to have his entire coffee crop to offer to our small batch roaster partners!
