We are located in one of the remotest regions of Costa Rica. A region that is not traditionally known to produce coffee because geographically is so difficult to reach that just a few people have tried to grow coffee there. This region, however, has one of the best micro-climate, soils, and altitude to grow coffee in the world. The altitude range at our Coffea diversa garden is 1200-1350 meters above sea level.
Province of Puntarenas in the southernmost region of Costa Rica, right next to the border with Panama. Our garden is tucked in the outskirts of the La Amistad International Park, the largest forest reserve in Central America with about 500,000 hectares of protected primary tropical rainforests. It is denominated “International” because it extends into the neighbor country of Panama. This forest reserve guarantees a the purest environment there is to grow our coffee.
Coffea diversa garden enjoys a very particular micro-climate. Since it is very close to the top of the Talamanca Mountain Range in La Amistad International Park, it has the influence of both, the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean climates, a rare phenomenon that has an effect in the taste profile of our coffees.
La Amistad International Park is considered one of the world’s largest unaltered tropical forests. In 1982 the UNESCO declared it Reserve of the Biosphere “La Amistad” and in 1983 was denominated a “World Heritage Site”, due to its exceptional universal value..
