They named the farm Los Cristales because there is a crystal-clear water stream that passes through the farm. They started producing specialty coffee in 2014 and since then, Dagoberto has been extremely strict and careful with his processes. He is always willing to pay more money to his workers for them to do a good job and pay great attention to detail when harvesting just rope cherries.
