Finca Licho is owned by the Aguilera Brothers, 12 brothers and sisters who work their mill and farms themselves, with their only hired labour being pickers during the harvest. The Finca was founded in 2006 and is in the West Valley coffee-growing region, an area famous for producing quality. Most of their coffee is of the Villa Sarchi variety due to it being native to the area. Villa Sarchi is a natural dwarf mutation of Bourbon that was discovered in the 1950s. It is well adapted to high altitudes and has been an important breeding variety. This specific lot was processed via the natural method, where coffee cherries are dried whole on raised beds. This coffee has wonderful sweetness and tropical fruit notes.
