The Story

Finca La Innovación is the project of third-generation farmer Mauricio Peñalba and returns as The Fields for the second year running. As implied by the naming of the farm, Mauricio is determined to improve production, biodiversity and processing standards. Growing fruit and pine trees amongst the coffee has created a unique micro-climate, home to native birds and also generating useful organic matter to be repurposed as fertiliser.

Having worked with the COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala) cooperative team to develop his organic production, Señor Peñalba has seen the quality and consistency of his coffee dramatically improve. Seeking to differentiate his small production further he is now experimenting with natural processing, saving water and offering intensely fruit-forward coffees. Despite the many challenges of 2020 this has been his most successful harvest yet, yielding a larger crop of impeccable quality. Rich, boozy and tropical tasting notes set this apart as a decadent expression of natural processed coffee.
