Compared with the rest of our small Colombian producing partners, Omar Viveros' Miraflores is a veritable coffee factory. His output has a lot to do with terroir and with the varieties of coffee he grows, but the biggest secret to Omar's production is Omar.

 Omar wanted to make sure his coffees were only being picked at their peak of ripeness, so he pays a higher wage and provides sleeping quarters for the workers. He constructed his own fermentation tanks and experiments with different processes to coax out different flavors. He built a retractable sun-shield in his parabolic dryer so he can better control the temperatures in the heat of the day. This kind of ingenuity at the farm level is inspiring to see, and it's why Miraflores is a shining example of what can be accomplished when a quality-focused producer pours his efforts into producing the best coffee he can.
