Martin Chirino




Plum, Date, Honey

Don Martin, a coffee farmer for 40 years and landowner for half that time, has passed on his passion to his 4 children who also work in coffee. He has been part of the Sol De La Mañana program for 8 years, where he has learned and developed his farming methods. Unlike nearby traditional farms, Martin's farm has a neat layout, methodical pruning, and vigorous coffee plants.

Sol De La Mañana producers, like Martin, take their freshly picked coffee cherries to the Buena Vista mill run by the Rodriguez family in Caranavi. The Rodriguez family innovated the Anaerobic Fermentation stage, done in stainless steel vessels, to process coffee. The onsite lab provides precise data to manage the process and deliver consistent quality.
