From Apex Coffee -
Merci Judit Fernandez is a young producer who grows Bourbon at her farm La Pomarrosa, located in the province of Jaén in the Colasay region. She began working in the coffee sector after watching her family run their own plantations. Her family passed on to her a wealth of knowledge and, above all, "the love with which they work". According to Merci, coffee is her greatest legacy. Coffee has enabled Merci's parents to lead a comfortable life and provide an education for their children. Merci graduated as an "agricultural and livestock producer", while helping her family on their farm. Studying and working at the same time has enabled her to go beyond the classroom. Harvesting on her farms takes around four to five months. Although she has reported difficulties in drying her coffee, the results of her work show how well she has adapted to all circumstances.
