Horta Santos inherited Finca El Bambu from her parents, who used to produce coffee on this small but full-of-blessings piece of land.
Horta’s parents acquired the farm after lots of work, efforts, dedication, and passion. Now, Horta produces coffee on her own and she hires workers herself to help her on the farm as well as her partner.
“Knowing that my parents started to build this farm with such effort and hard work, and then knowing that their very last steps were on this piece of land, fills me with motivation to work here, with the same love, passion and dedication that they did to produce some of the best Mexican coffee.
Additionally, I know that this will be my legacy to my children.” says Horta.
Finca El Bambu has a great location because, from the highest point of the farm, Horta has a breathtaking view of the sea in Puerto Escondido, on the Pacific Coast.
Horta started producing specialty coffee two years ago when she was searching for better prices, and she found Caravela, our sourcing partner in Mexico.
“Working with Caravela has been great, because they are there for you, willing to help and give feedback, not only throughout the whole harvest, but also throughout the whole year.
The PECA educator has helped us to improve our farm’s infrastructure and the quality of our coffee.” says Horta.
