Coffees produced by Luis Antonio Contreras at his El Descanso Farm

All the coffees produced by Luis, microlots, are subjected to quality controls that take into account a good fertilization, a delicate harvesting of the coffee beans and an exhaustive pest control among others. All these processes, when well applied, result in brilliant coffees.

Producer Luis Antonio Contreras

I dedicate myself to coffee growing because since I was young I have worked in coffee plantations and I am happy with my family and with my dedication to my work.
Luis Antonio Contreras is the son of coffee growers and started coffee farming to support his family.
With the death of his father, Luis, together with his mother and siblings, took care of the farm.
Over the years, the Contreras brothers divided the farm so that they could each work with their families on their crops.
