Since 2003, we have been working in Marcala with the Caballero family: Fabio and Sandra Isabel Caballero, their daughter Marysabel, son-in-law Moisés, and the rest of the team at their farms and mills. Since 2012, they have been growing Geisha, the world's most elegant and most celebrated cultivar. This Geisha lot comes from a cool pine grove at Las Virginias, the family's highest-elevation farm.
