Bernan Urena comes from a coffee producing family. He has been growing coffee for 35 years and processing micro lots for 3 years now. He decided to process specialty coffee after recognising the opportunity to raise prices by selling into specialty markets. Bernan is a member of the FUNDECAP Association, where 9 producers are business partners and share processing facilities. After the wet mill at FUNDECAP, Bernan takes the wet parchment to sun-dry at his house, where he has built raised beds. This allows him to implement a 'small scale' approach to drying which ultimately optimises the flavour potential of the coffee.
