The Producer

This is a true family farming operation; coffee cultivation for the Gamboa family dates back to the 1800s. Family patriarch, Tutto Gamboa, has been in the coffee business since he was 15. Now the day to day management of operations is carried out by his son and daughter-in-law, Emilio and Laura. Together, they manage all aspects of coffee production at their micro-mill, Montes de Oro. Stumptown has been working with the Gamboa Family since 2006.

The Process

The farm is planted with Caturra, CatuaĆ­, Bourbon, Villa Sarchi, and Gesha varieties. Coffee at Montes de Oro is washed processed at the small wet mill on-site. Weather permitting, the parchment is first dried on raised beds and then placed on patios or in rotating mechanical dryers to finish the process.
