Very sweet and balanced coffee, with notes of apple and dried fruit and coating texture with nougat notes..

“Verde Alto” translated means “Green High”. Juani’s farm is extremely high at 1850mASL and he employs only green methods in his farming of speciality coffee. With over 60 years’ experience growing speciality coffee, Juani is now imparting this knowledge to his sons who help him with the farm.

Extensive pruning and experienced farm management promotes new tissue growth (shiny green leaves) on the 16,000 coffee trees, this will double the harvest size for the following year season. The farm is managed without herbicides, is fully shade-grown and on-time fertilization. One could call it a semi-organic management and low level weeds retained give the farm a comforting rustic feel, compared to some farms which look like immaculate show gardens. Even though the farms’ neighbours are affected by leaf rust disease, this is not a problem at the farm because of excellent farm management skills. Juani Cordero regularly replants his farm with new trees so now his oldest trees are 20 years old, with others at 15, 5 and 2 years old. The complete farm covers an area of 12 manzanas the unit of measurement used in Costa Rica, which is equivalent to 8.4 hectares. He manages the farm with his son Gravin and one other full-time worker. However, during the harvest they employ 20-25 pickers who are mostly from the local village, San Pablo, and also some workers from Panama.
