Background: From our producer:
We grow beans on 42 hectares of fertile land with lots of natural shadow. There are old pine trees covering much of our plantation and also the surrounding forest, which creates a cooler, somewhat humid climate. We have planted abundant banana, orange, and lime trees to boost shadow, as well as for personal consumption.
We grow several varieties like Pacas, Anacafé 14, but the dominating varieties are Parainema and Obata.
The farm covers a range of altitudes, between 1,200 and 1,550 meters. We start harvesting our coffees at the lowest altitudes by the end of October and we end with beans on the highest parts around early March, assuring a long-lasting, high quality harvest.
