Coffee farmed by Álvaro Soberanes at sky high altitude of 1500m, under old growth leguminous trees which pump nitrogen back into the soil, nothing more needs to be added. The farm is called El Volador which means the Flying One. The Cerro de la Campana area near Coatepec, Veracruz provides almost perfect conditions for coffee growing, producing one of the best coffees in Mexico if not the World.
