Pepe Jijon is a unique Coffee Farmer. He is a mountaineer and avid climber who has reached the peak of Everest and every major mountain on all continents. He's also a professional DJ and has played internationally in front of large crowds - however - you can mostly find him playing music for his coffee trees from the porch of his Finca. It's for this reason his coffee tastes so spectacular... maybe!
