Vidal Pérez Ambrocio owns the roughly 1.5-hectare farm called El Mirador, where he grows coffee in the view of the town of Sipacapa. The coffee here is picked ripe and depulped the same day, then fermented for 12–18 hours before being washed clean of mucilage.

 

It is dried on concrete patios or sometimes on Nylon, and the drying time varies based on the weather but typically takes 4–6 days.

 

Vidal has a strong interest in environmental concerns and is careful to practice soil conservation techniques and to process his gray water appropriately.
