Ferney Cruz comes from a family of coffee producers - however he is the only one who produces specialty grade coffee. He tells us he puts in the extra effort because he believes that creating a superior product and choosing quality over quantity is a more sustainable and rewarding way to provide for himself and his family. The competition Best of Tarqui brings coffee roasters and producers together, and we’ve been a part of it four times now. We got to cup and score coffee from over 60 producers from the area and this is how we got introduced to Ferney. His coffee was our absolute favourite, and he placed third in the competition. His placement means that he gets payed a premium and that we bought this lot for over twice the market price.
