At a conference Arturo and Shane attended at the plantation of Juan Carlos Acevedo in northeast Ecuador in January of 2020, they met some representatives from the region of Manabi. The representatives brought some coffee grown in the region for others to taste, and of course - it was delicious! So, like that Arturo formed a new objective - meet a coffee farmer from Manabi that would be interested in becoming part of the Z Beans family! Two weeks later, a sample from the plantation of William Martillo made its way to Zaruma - to Arturo’s home. After some analysis and tasting, it was clear - we found a new partner!
