This coffee comes from a farm that's actually two farms, but the two farms exist as one farm. They do produce coffee independently, though. Exciting, huh?
Overall the farm is called Finca Sumava de Lourdes, and it's located in Lourdes de Naranjo in the western valley of Costa Rica at an altitude between 1,670 and 1,790 metres above sea level.
The farm is made up of two farms called Finca Monte Llano Bonito, which has nine plots of land, and Finca Monte Lourdes, which has six plots of land. This coffee comes from Finca Monte Llano Bonito. Keeping up? Here's a picture that might help!
There are ten permanent workers who live on the farm in a custom built workers' camp. All of them receive accommodation as part of their employment.
Finca Sumava de Lourdes adheres to strict agronomic practices and ensures the minimum use of herbicides and pesticides. The farmers use MMs (Mountain Microorganisms) and minerals from natural origins as much as they can.
It's a farm where the owners enjoy growing many different coffee varietals. If you wandered around the farm, you'd see Pacamara, Mokka, H3, SL28, Geisha, Caturra and Villa Sarchi. Francisco loves to experiment with different varietals to see how they react to the land, and it's thanks to that desire and drive that amazing projects like the Exclusive Coffees 50 lb Elite Programme exist.
There's a big hit of sweetness, a mix of white sugar and chocolate, but with a flavour of orange running through it all. That citrus note comes to the fore on the finish where it shifts into sweet lemon.
