Where is it from?

This is our third year offering Nelson Ramirez's coffee. Mr. Ramirez is altogether a different kind of farmer in Santa Barbara, having the biggest operation in the area and having the privilege of receiving a formal agronomy education. Originally from Copan, he comes from a smallholder lineage – his grandfather having been a small holder. Nelson used to work for a company that, among other things, sold fertilizer. Now he wants to use his experience and connections not only to his own benefit as a full-time farmer, but also in helping other farmers in his community. He and his former business partners have come up with a fertilizer that emphasizes potassium, which he says helps fix nitrogen to coffee plants, making for healthier trees and a sweeter cup.
