Family is everything for the owners of El Suyatal farm.
Why we love this coffee
Luis Valladarez raised his two sons in the tradition that growing excellent coffee requires equal parts experience, skill and harmonious care for the people and environment. And both sons returned to help cultivate the land after college, using their degrees in agronomy and business to grow coffees that have garnered awards.
Now the Valladarez family is going a step further. They know how important it is for their pickers who venture to the farm every day to have their children close by. So they’ve partnered with Starbucks to build a kindergarten right on the farm. With this unique investment, they’re giving the next generation of coffee families at El Suyatal their own opportunities to grow something wonderful.
About Starbucks Reserve™ coffee
Our constant travels around the world take us in search of small-lot coffees that are distinctive enough to earn our Starbucks Reserve™ label. Each coffee is one-of-a-kind—sourced from small coffee-growing regions in Latin America, Africa and Asia / Pacific Islands.
All Starbucks Reserve™ coffees are roasted with care, at our Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery and Tasting Room in Seattle, to bring out their peak flavour expression. They are available in limited supply in select Starbucks® stores or delivered to you.
