ABOUT THE PLANTATION

This coffee is grown on the slopes of the Irazù volcano, in the Tarrazu region, by a small cooperative of responsible farmers who share the same profound respect for their land and the environment. They take all the necessary precautions to minimize their ecological footprint when processing coffee.

The magnificent landscapes of the Tarrazu region boasts volcanic soil where ideal traditional methods are used for growing coffee, ensuring a very high quality with every harvest.

In Costa Rica, the coffee trade represents 30% of their local economy. In the south of the province of San José, we can count more or less 7,000 families who produce coffee on about 13,000 hectares. Coffee beans are the country's third most exported food after pineapples and bananas.
