    Don Byron Corrales’ finca Los Pinos, he has created a symbiotic ecosystem where everything works together. He plants his coffee in close proximity to one of his favourite trees, the Elequeme. The Elequeme tree has an intricate root system that fixes nitrogen into the soil. Don Byron creates a mycorrhizal association by spreading a layer of fungus on the soil surrounding his plants. The fungus becomes a communication channel between the coffee plants and Elequeme trees and when necessary, the Elequeme fixes essential nutrients into the soil to supply the coffee plants. This is a break-though, because over time(roughly 10 years) it can create an organic, self-sustaining coffee lot without the need for costly inputs like fertilizer.

    Don Byron explains his concept of biodynamic flavours; when the moon is a crescent, the water in the plant is concentrated in the roots, when the moon is half, water is concentrated in the middle of the plant(the branches) and when the moon is full, water is concentrated in the coffee cherries on the plant; this is the best time to pick coffee. Byron claims he can get 144 different flavours from one plant.

    Don Byron creates a bokashi fertilizer on his farm that is 100% organic. He plants and feeds his cows a specific plant called the Nacedero, because it is very dense in micronutrients. He uses the dung from the cows, coffee cherry pulp, volcanic rocks and other plants from his farm to create the fertilizer mixture. He lets it sit for 2 weeks as it ferments and then applies 5kg per plant twice a year; In reality he can put as much fertilizer as he wants on the plants without harming them, because it is completely organic; the plant will only absorb what it needs.
