Cresencio is a neighbour of the Moreno family and one of the many farmers who has been inspired by them to focus on growing quality coffee.
Cresencio Izaguirre is a second-generation coffee farmer from El Cedral, a small village on the slopes of Santa Barbara. Cresencio regards his ability to continue his parents’ profession to be one of his greatest achievements in his life and his passion for the trade really shines through in his coffees.
His coffee trees grow on steep slopes boasting in sun and wind and accessible only by foot or a mule. Optimal conditions for developing excellent cup notes but extremely challenging ones for farming duties.
