Olvin Fernández is the youngest member of the Fernández clan; he is part of the 3rd generation of coffee producers in his family. At only 28 years old, he´s the manager of his own farm, which he inherited from his father when he passed away. 2015 is his 7th year participating in COE. His dream is to be the winner and he is working hard for that.
His passion for coffee is contagious. He told us: I simply love coffee, since I was a child my mom gave me the brew in baby bottles... "Coffee It´s all we have, It´s simply Our Life". In the past my family and I used to cultivate in the traditional way, but now we are very committed to quality, we care for beans like a new born baby, like a jewel; I am satisfied and proud to be a specialty coffee grower, and I´m going to work this way for the rest of my life.
For milling, we have a depulping machine on the farm , a large patio and 9 solar dryers. This provides us the opportunity to give the coffee the proper treatment at the right time.
