The APECAP Cooperative Partners since 2013
2016 is the second year in a row that Gonzalo Castillo's coffee has placed first at the Bracamoros competition in Southern Ecuador. This year Gonzalo teamed up with his neighbor Juan Calva, former president of APECAP, to submit their coffee in partnership to the competition.
“It's important that consumers know the level of quality we have," says Juan Calva. "These are special coffees for special people."
