Hola Luis, es un placer poder conocer gente de la industria por este medio! Nosotros tenemos una finca, con microbeneficio y estamos en el proceso de aprender del tostado y la catación. Tenemos ya la maquina de tostar, pero nos vendria bien un poco de conocimiento y aprendizaje en este campo y el de la catacióon. Sugerencias?? Como es lo de la escuela de cafe por alla??
