Our new coffee from Duvier Rivera offers a fusion of sweet citrus and floral aromas. The cup highlights flavorful notes of lemon meringue, blackberry and dried apricots with vanilla and milk chocolate.
Duvier Rivera acquired his farm 4 years ago. He has been focusing on high quality specialty coffee in Guadalupe, which is a little more than a year and a half.
Prior to farming coffee, he was a member of the National Police, although his parents had always been coffee farmers.
He works in specialty coffee for the recognition, his passion, his family and also for the extra income that he receives.
Previously he had also grown tomatoes and lulo, but he says he won't change from growing coffee. Currently he has Caturra and Typica varities and he has plans to plant a lot of Maragogype because of the reputation that this variety has for quality.
What has helped him most to improve the quality of his coffee is the PECA grower's education program that Virmax has offered. Thanks to PECA he has been able to achieve micro lot grade on some of the lots that he has sold (and these are the lots that Klatch now has).
