  • Driven by experimentation, Pedro Turcios cultivates Catuai, Icatú, Pache, H27, Parainema and Gesha varieties on his farm, Finca Maria Bonita – named in honour of his mother, grandmother and nieces who all bear the name “Maria”, with “Bonita” meaning beautiful.

    A third-generation coffee farmer and youngest of five siblings, Pedro was raised by his single mother who instilled in them a love for coffee, teaching them how to plant, produce and process coffee on her small farm. At a young age, Pedro was able to turn his hobby into his profession, becoming a professional football player, providing the opportunity to pay for his studies and to support his family. After graduating, Pedro returned to Marcala and partnered with his brothers to buy land for coffee production.

    Pedro’s farm is part of COMSA (Cafe Organico Marcala S.A), a progressive Fairtrade cooperative in Marcala, La Paz, whose goal is to invest in organic production, rather than conventional. COMSA continues to innovate and experiment with organic practices, always with the emphasis on ecological balance, preserving local plant life and maintaining good soil health. Pedro has found that the introduction of microorganisms in compost and the use of organic fertilisers have a direct effect on the quality of his coffees.
