Roger Antonio Domínguez Márquez owns several farms in La Paz, Marcala. Roger is a young producer who inherited his father’s midsize farms, which came into the family in the early 1990s. He has three parcels of land in Marcala, all between 3–5 hectares, at good altitude for the region, above 1,300 meters. He grows a small variety of heirloom types, mostly Bourbon, Catuai, and Caturra, and he’s specific about his wet-milling and drying.
Roger has experimented with Natural processing over the last few years where he dries his coffees on raised beds in greenhouses. We first purchased coffees from Roger two years ago and have continued to track down his top quality natural lots ever since.This lot is a natural processed, catuai varietal from Finca Las Flores. We find it to be incredibly sweet and reminds us of strawberries with ice cream.
