El Cambalache is a farm run by Samuel Zavala that has been in his family for 11 years. Per Nordby has been working with Samuel for five years and as a young agronomist Samuel uses both his family tradition and his own education to grow coffee beans on the farm. Samuel is in love with Maracaturra, a variety with big beans and when treated iright a unique fruity and spicy flavour. This lot is a honey process where Samuel pulp the coffee cherry and let it dry with muscilage. First one day in the sun on patios, then in the shade on tables for 12 days and finally 2 days in the sun on patios. This method is Samuels own and a result of many years of trials.
