In his mid-fifties, Florencio Villatoro is incredibly diligent and active despite having had many setbacks. Florencio started young, with a coffee nursery and a small lot gifted by his father. He's been working earnestly since he was 13. At the age of 25, he was in a tragic car accident which damaged his leg, but he's continued working, innovating, and thriving with the support from his family.
Florencio's wife Lesvia Marilú López has actively worked in the farm operations through the decades. Now, their four children, Riner, Maikel, Yelsin and Danita, are adults living and working around the farm. On any given afternoon during the bustle of harvest, you might see Florencio turning parchment rows on the patios or laughing with his grandchildren while Riner weighs cherry turn-ins from pickers, and Maikel cups day lots with the cousins in at the family lab.
Florencio has a great sense of humor, and like the rest of his family is kind and generous; and a great host. He loves to talk with friends, spend time outdoors, watch soccer with the community, and spend a lot of time with his family.

I use Dark Drop with my usual go-to of Planet Oat Barista oatmilk and found that they complement each other nicely!
For this installment of Bill simply reviews coffee. I have @torquecoffees Gaitania Community from Colombia. Sweet and smooth are the first things that came to mind. For me I noticed chocolate and caramel. Kinda like a Twix bar but without the cookie. Hints of pears and a mild acidity round this one out.
This coffee is part of their rotating offerings in and out so get it while you can.
I love the the Dark Drop! Also, ordering was easy and it was here in just a few days. Great Experience!!
Loved my coffee! Excellent smell and flavor!

A nice cuppa! Honey Drop stands up to its name.
I love this coffee. Great flavor profile and INCREDIBLE mission to support coffee farmers. You won’t be disappointed.
Disclaimer: I was gifted. Thanks for the gift, Torque!
Very smooth, sweet, light cup of coffee. This makes for a great start to the day.
As an avid coffee lover I have been purchasing my whole beans through gocoffeego. I have tried numerous roasters and all different types of beans and while I had some amazing coffees simply nothing compares to Ty hybrid honey 15 Costa Rica!
I have had many of your previous Barefoot coffees but you guys have out done yourselves with this one.
Truly a delectable coffee.
And can’t say enough of your business model and giving back to the farmers as this is how it should be.
Keep up the great mastership of selection and roasting!!
I will venture through some of your other coffees but for now can’t stop buying 2lbs at a time!!!
This is great for hot or iced coffee, so good!
It has a strong after taste, it’s is strong and taste smooth. I used French press to make the coffee and it came out great.
Loved the taste of this coffee…the taste is what makes it different from other coffees 👌🏻👌🏻
Amazing coffee. The flavor is so incredibly smooth, you will wonder how you ever choked down your previous coffees before this one. You can brew it strong and never have the bitter flavor to go with it. I even find myself using less cream with this roast
This coffee is delicious! It doesn’t taste or smell burnt/bitter, and it’s so smooth!
