At the heights of the mountains where this Tres Nubes coffee is grown, the same heights at which these farms overlap the clouds, a beautiful landscape and serene atmosphere is created for coffee cultivation. One of the best growing regions in Costa Rica, many of the coffees grown here feature highly amongst the winners in the Cup of Excellence auctions. This is likely due to the traceability of this coffee so that quality can be better controlled.
In this valley, lush volcanic soils are mixed with stable temperatures and abundant sunlight throughout the course of the year, shaping the ideal environment to grow coffee.
The farms of this region belong to small, independent farmers whose old fashioned methods produce a coffee of outstanding quality. This coffee is produced by a selected group of coffee farmers on plantations that are well-cared for. These coffees celebrate the natural beauty of the region.
