We first met Sandra and her husband Hector in 2016, and their coffee was some of the first we ever bought when we started Morgon. Year after year it’s been a favourite of ours and we’re so happy and proud to introduce you to their Caturra and Tabi. Not only does Sandra and Hector produce amazing coffee, they do it in the most inspiring way. Her farm is completely organic and of the 9 hectares she owns, she only farms 5 of them. This is because she believes her trees will be healthier and produce a better cup if they don’t run the risk of growing in a soil with monoculture. Diversity and nature are the keywords here and nothing is left to chance.
When Sandra Milena Mora and her husband Hector bought their small farm in 2007, they only produced Caturra. However, a severe leaf rust attack in 2013 nearly destroyed most of their trees. Sandra and Hector are against the use of pesticides and only uses organic fertiliser so they had to try something new. They became early adaptors of the variety Tabi, a leaf rust resistant plant that is a hybrid of the Arabica varietals Bourbon, Typica and the Robusta varietal Timor. It’s this type of dedication and forward thinking that makes us proud to keep working with Sandra and her gorgeous coffee.
