The farm, run by Markus Fischer is characterised by it’s micro climates, its shade trees and its volcanic soil help produce very special coffee qualities. At the fully integrated wet and dry processing plant of La Bastilla Estate, they differentiate the coffees harvested from different farm sections or different varieties with 4 different processes.La Bastilla is located in an extremely rural area, with the closest official school located 6km away. That is why they’ve built a small school for the children of their employees in 2003. Currently they have more than 200 students attending all grades from pre-school, primary and secondary school, and employ 6 teachers.
