Los Suspiros, or ‘The Sighs’, is a collaboration between Axel Palacios and Fredy Morales, childhood friends and members of the same basketball team. Following in family footsteps, Axel knows all there is to know about coffee production from his grandfather’s farm, while Fredy learnt about coffee processing at his family’s mill. Together they took on a plot on Axel’s family farm to implement their ideas and experiments, producing ever higher qualities of coffee. With a focus on Bourbon and Caturra, Axel helps Fredy with technical support and advice around forestry management such as controlling the amount of protection provided by the Gravilea and Chalum shade trees. Where as Fredy has taught Axel how to cup and identify changes and flavour nuances in the harvested beans. As Axel grows the coffee and Fredy processes it, the Los Suspiros coffee represents the coming together of two minds with a singular goal; producing the best coffee possible.
