Gabriel Fernandez Delgado is the owner of one and a half hectares of coffee farm planted at 2005 masl. Gabriel grows predominantly caturra variety, which makes up this lot. Since Falcon started working with Gabriel in 2018 his coffee has improved considerably, having focused on improving the quality of the cherry selection in picking. This improvement has seen his coffee improve by 3 points, which has resulted in a considerable increase in his income, which is especially important given how little land he owns. Gabriel picks and processes his coffee with the help of his family.
