Calguera Gomez works with 37 surrounding family-owned farms. Most of these farms average between 10 to 24 acres. The farms use micro mills to process the harvested cherries. This enables them to be extremely thorough in depulping, fermenting and drying of the beans. Calguera strives to organize and support local producers, by providing access to the best agricultural practices. As a result, this also allows them to pay high prices for higher quality bean production.
