Barbara

I am the founder of El Quetzal de Mindo a Cafe and coffee roastery in Mindo, Ecuador. My passion is coffee and I have spent the last 20 years learning everything that I can about coffee from roasting to preparation methods. We planted over 100 coffee trees on our property in Mindo. We have the ability to show you how coffee grows, the coffee cherries, harvesting, processing and preparing cups of coffee. We love to share what we know about coffee with others. Carlos (native Ecuadorian), Leslie (a biologist) and I give the coffee tours at El Quetzal de Mindo.
