Diego Lopez has had a passion for coffee since his childhood. He acquired his farm in 2006 after working as an agro-engineer. In Finca San Francisco he grows primarily Caturra, a variety which has been engineered to be disease and pest resistant. Thanks to his interest in coffee and agronomy, Diego learns more and more about coffee every day. For these reasons he decided to experiment with honey processing, with the help of Condor.
