Gerardo Moreno is one of the 7 brothers of the Moreno family. Together with his family they have made an exceptional journey in the specialty coffee business and been one of the driving forces in transforming the way coffee is cultivated in their neighborhood.
Morenos' grow their coffees on the same steep hills together with our long-time partner Cresencio, a close neighbor of theirs. They whole dynasty started with the original El Filo farm and the patriarch of the family, Daniel Moreno. Steep hills, high altitude, close proximity to rain forests and the striking contrast between the coldness of the nights and the warmth of the sunny days have a great affect on creating complex flavor notes, depth, sweetness and brightness that are descriptive to the coffees from this area. Combined to the generations of knowledge, passion and dedication this becomes a winning recipe.
We met the Moreno's for the first time in 2014 and their family has played a significant role in our path to specialty coffee. Before Gerardo, we have worked with his brothers Miquel and Danny as well as his nephew Dolmin.
As the family itself continues to evolve, with the younger generation taking on more responsibility, the Moreno family’s commitment to their buyers remains steadfastly loyal and forward-looking.
