As is the case among many excellent coffees throughout Latin America, much of the credit for this offering belongs to one particular family. The “Dos Socios” (two partners) for whom the farm is named are Concepción Villatoro Matías and his son-in-law, who own and administrate the bulk of the farm’s operations together. Much of the rest of the family works on the farm as well, while Villatoro’s oldest granddaughter has recently earned a degree in accounting, financed by the farm’s success. Over the years, their efforts have evolved remarkably, not only with regard to the overall quality of their coffee, but in their ability to separate lots and offer a variety of distinct options for export. With gentle fruit flavors of apple and pear atop a creamy and chocolatey body, our rendition of Dos Socios is a very versatile coffee that has also earned a place in our Citizen blend for espresso.
