About the Don Tomas Estate
The Don Tomas Estate is made up of a total of four farms, all located on the slopes of the Santa Ana Volcano at a height of 1,200 to 1,850 meters above sea level. Producer Don Tomas first planted the bourbon variety 10 years ago and has ensured an increase in quality year on year thanks to careful farm management and good agricultural practices.
The coffee is protected by natural shade cover, including the surrounding mountains and Pepeto trees. Pepeto trees also provide excellent nutrients and organic matter for the soil through leaves falling and decomposing during pruning.
We are extremely pleased to work directly with Tomas, having visited his farm in 2019, and look forward to supporting the continued expansion of his farm.
