This coffee comes from three estates in Huehue, one of the non volcanic coffee producing regions of the country. Due to its topography, there are multiple micro climates which are perfect for coffee production, giving the coffee nice fruit notes. Finca Joya Grande was established in 1976 as a very small coffee plantation operation. All coffee pulp resulting from the wet mill process is utilized as organic fertilizer. The farm works under a strict shade-grown policy and also has forest conservation areas that provide shelter to many native fauna and flora species. Finca Vasquez was established in 1980 by Don Jose Vasquez. The current owners of the farm are Genaro and Juan Vasquez (son and grandson of Don Jose). Both of them are quality oriented, keeping the same practices and varietals as Don Jose once did. Finca La Maravilla was acquired in 1997 from an extension of El Injerto II. To not cause any environmental impact in the farm, all weed control is done by hand and no herbicides are used. The farm has participated many times in coffee “Cup of Excellence,” being ranked in the top 10 twice.
