Founded in 1940 by his father and uncles, El Refugio coffee production has steadily improved farming techniques and processing to yield some remarkable offerings. In 1992, Oswaldo Perez Ramirez purchased the farm from his brothers and the neighboring farm to establish Finca El Refugio, with an area of 105 hectares of coffee and 35 hectares of untouched tropical rainforest. The farm has its own wet and dry mills, housing for 150 permanent residents and the “Casa Patronal” Mr. Oswaldo’s house. The name “El Refugio”, is in honor of the people who fled the war in México from 1850-1860, who took refuge crossing the Guatemalan border to not get captured, and finding in those beautiful mountains the perfect Refugio.
This is an exquisite coffee with delicate notes of black cherry, dark chocolate, and laced with florals. Happy brewing!
