Santa Barbara is an idealic micro-producer region for coffee. There are many single producers that produce coffee in small micro-lots for the purpose of being connected with quality focused roasters. Many of these roasters and producers have been working together for numerous years. We hope to do just that with Anibal Baca and build a long term relationship together.
Anibal named the farm La Fortaleza, or strength in English because he wanted to always remember that to produce coffee you need to be strong and never give up despite the challenges. Since he purchased the land, he did it with the vision of producing specialty coffee.
