Ulrich Salamun produces first rate coffee on his “Finca Los Andes”, but he confesses that he always refers to it by its regional name as “Finca La Pavona”. The Austrian Ulrich Salamun, who is also known for his comedian group “maschek.”, is growing coffee in Nicaragua since 2003. The coffee is pulped, fermented, washed and pre-dried on the farm, then transported to the family owned Dry Mill, where it is sun dried and – after a period of rest of at least six weeks – hulled and carefully prepared for exportation.
