full description

Farmer:Luís Antonio Contreras worked with his brothers on the family farm, owned by his parents. it was clear that he wanted to become a coffee farmer in the future. A few years later, Luis' father died and left the farm to his mother and brothers; it was then that Luis worked with his brothers to help the family move forward. When all the brothers came of age, they decided to divide the land and work individually with their families. At that point Luís obtained the land that is now El Descanso Farm. Once he obtained his share of land, Luís began to work it. Together with his wife and children, those lands are today the El Descanso Farm. The family's hard work and spirit of self-improvement helps them continuously work to improve the farm's facilities. and produce specialty coffees, which is what they like most, dedicating their time and effort. Currently the surface area of ​​the El Descanso farm is seven and a half hectares, of which almost three and a half hectares are dedicated to coffee cultivation. The farm's coffee trees grow the Castillo, Colombia, Caturra, Bourbon Rosado and Geisha varieties. The Contreras family is happy to work together and, in addition to making Finca El Descanso a place of work, they have managed to make it a home.

Process: The coffee cherries are harvested by hand and selected in tanks to separate those of higher quality and ripeness, they are then stripped and the seeds still covered in parchment and mucilage, they are traditionally fermented dry for 36 hours, once the mucilage has broken down thanks to the action of the enzymes, the coffee is rinsed in clean water and left to dry for about 10 days, on raised beds in particular conditions that preserve the quality of the coffee, the entire drying process is followed with dedication and care to ensure that the coffee is homogeneous and preserves its quality.



The Farmgate price is ultimately the real price paid to the farmer who originally produced the coffee. Ultimately it is the most transparent price you can find. 
The following costs must then be added to the Farmgate price before arriving at the roastery: 

  • Packaging costs
  • Handling costs at origin
  • Logistics costs (shipping and customs duties)
  • Handling costs on arrival
  • Customs clearance costs and phytosanitary controls in Europe
  • Internal transport costs 

How to choose:

Our packages are all packaged in a protected atmosphere (first under vacuum and then we insert nitrogen), using this particular technology which eliminates oxygen in the package, the coffee remains fresh for up to 3 months after roasting.

We roast in two different ways, dividing into two main groups, based on the type of extraction:

  • Light: suitable for Filtro/Aeropress type extractions, or for those looking for a coffee with a note of strong acidity and many aromas.
  • Medium: suitable for Espresso/Moka extractions, or for those who want a coffee with a much more intense flavor and a hint of bitterness.

There are dozens of different grindings, it can be said that each machine or equipment requires a specific grinding.

With us you can choose to buy ground coffee for Moka or Filter.

We have tried to summarize them as follows:

  • Jug/Cezve:
  • Espresso:
  • Moka:
  • V60 Filter:
  • Chemex:
  • French Press/Infusore:

Coffee has a limited shelf life when we talk about quality. Even if up to 24 months can be written on the label, generally high quality coffee has lost most of its flavor and aroma in a few months. We recommend drinking it between 10 days and 60 days after the roasting date (provided the bag has never been opened). When the bag is opened, the quality of the coffee always deteriorates rapidly and aromas and flavor are lost within a few days. Unfortunately, the roasting date is not always written, especially by larger companies. On our packages you will find it clearly written on the back.

P.S. our bags are all vacuum packaged with added nitrogen, which extends the potential shelf life of the product.

How to do:


Espresso requires some precision rules:

  • Quality coffee
  • Recommended roasting within 30-40 days
  • Fine grinding
  • Water temperature around 90-92°
  • A single dose of 8-9g (double dose of 15-17g)
  • Extraction time approximately 25 seconds

The use of quality espresso machines (range from €600 and up) can ensure a better result.
Preferably are machines that also have a coffee grinder to grind "fresh" coffee

The Moka requires a little attention:

  • Use filtered or bottled water (NO TAP)
  • Recommended roasting within 30-40 days
  • Medium-fine grinding
  • Fill the boiler with water without exceeding the valve
  • Place the ground coffee into the filter without pressing or making any bumps, simply level it at the edge
  • Place over medium heat
  • Wait for the liquid to rise through the chimney, without letting it gurgle (TURN OFF AS SOON AS THE FLOW OF COFFEE BEGINS TO GO FAST AND COLOURLESS)
  • Mix before serving

The Moka should only be washed with water and any neutral detergents (taking care to rinse carefully with water), never in the dishwasher or with abrasive sponges.

  • Medium grind (medium-coarse for Chemex)

  • Approximately 15g of ground coffee for every 250g of water (Chemex at least 30g per 500g of water)
  • Pre-infuse for 30-40 seconds by pouring hot water for double the weight of coffee used
  • Pour the water in two or three steps as desired with a rotating direction, being careful not to create too much turbulence
  • Contact/percolation time approximately 3 minutes (4-5 for Chemex)

A light roast is generally recommended for filter systems
