We visited Mauricio at Finca Helvetia in January 2015. While his family has been growing coffee for three generations, he continues to find stones yet unturned. We enjoyed much conversation around soil, sugar analysis, and best practices for shade application to coffee trees. This diverse farm includes legumes for natural nitrogen fixation in the soil, orange trees, and a diverse shade canopy.
