Paul Cascante Ureña (age 32) is currently the manager of all his family farms, which are located near the town of Palmichal and sum up a total of 14 hectares. Paul has a degree in agronomy, and at a young age, his vast knowledge shows not only by talking with him but also by seeing his pristine plantations. Paul is currently planting different varietals that will give him better yields and cup qualities.
“At Palmichal Micromill we have a state-of-the-art micro-mill that has been under constant improvement since it was first built in 2015. Our goal is to enhance the already very high quality of some of the top farms that we work with, through alternative processing methods. We are always experimenting to find the best process for each varietal and farm to maximize the complexity of each coffee. Our processes include honey, natural, and several anaerobic fermentation types.”
