Jose Martinez was born into a traditional coffee farming family in Palestina, Colombia. From adolescence, Jose learnt and participated in every step of the coffee growing journey. At the age of 16, he decided to part from the coffee industry and wound up becoming a bus driver; venturing across every corner of Colombia.


Ten years later, an older Jose Martinez returned to his family home and took over the coffee farm. Jose revitalised the farm by implementing speciality coffee growing practices.


One of such is implementations regards the ferments at Finca el Casino. All the fermentations at Finca El Casino are all are completed when a predetermined, measured endpoint is reached; ensuring well balanced flavours.


The extra income Jose has generated from converting to a speciality farm has encouraged him to further scrutinise every step of the coffee growing process in order to produce the best possible product.
