The Producer:

 

Mario Moreno is one of the seven brothers of the Moreno family. Together with his family, they have made an exceptional journey in the specialty coffee business and have been one of the driving forces in transforming how coffee is cultivated in their neighborhood.

 

Their family "dynasty" started with the original El Filo farm and the patriarch of the family, Daniel Moreno. Steep hills, high altitude, close proximity to rain forests, and the striking contrast between the coldness of the nights and the warmth of the sunny days have a great effect on creating complex flavor notes, depth, sweetness, and brightness descriptive to the coffees from this area. Combined with generations of knowledge, passion, and dedication, this becomes a winning recipe, so much so that they are no strangers to the Cup of Excellence winners list. Mario himself has 5 wins in the last ten years.

 

We met the Moreno family for the first time in 2014, and they have played a significant role in our path to specialty coffee. In previous years, we have worked with his brothers Miquel, Gerardo, and Danny, as well as his nephew Dolmin. As the family continues to evolve, with the younger generation taking on more responsibility, the Moreno family’s commitment to their buyers remains steadfastly loyal and forward-looking
