The excellence of this farm’s coffee can be attributed to many factors: such as the dedication of its owners, the Calkin Family, and management company, Mellano & Co. But, not to be overlooked is the performance of the soil itself. This particular property sits in a historic coastal growing area of San Diego, which was once the primary region for the production of crops such as avocados and flowers. Quail Haven sits 420 feet above sea level at the top of a mesa overlooking the coast. We are very excited about sharing this coffee in the years to come as we feel this crop will help define this brand-new region’s typical cup profile.
