Loma La Gloria Coffee Production:
Finca Loma La Gloria (“Hill of the Glory”) was started by Anny Ruth’s father, Roberto, in the late 1990’s. In 2001, Roberto built a dry mill whose operations were soon abandoned after it was built. During this time, Roberto still grew coffee but would sell it to other mills or on the local market.
In 2012, Anny began to take over operations with a clear vision of excellence and traceability and aimed to improve the quality of Loma La Gloria by controlling every step in the growing process. She set out to clearly demarcate every part of the farm by microlots and varietals, restarted operations at the dry mill, and began experimenting with various processing methods. The amount of effort this took cannot be properly put into words and also included training everyone involved in the farm from the pickers, to the patio workers, to her managers how to focus on quality processes in every step from planting to harvesting.
