ABOUT THE COFFEE
Alajuela Gesha comes from producer doña Manuela Echeverría of Hacienda Manuelita. The farm is located at the foot of the Poas Volcano amidst dairy and strawberry farms. The rich volcanic soils and unique micro-climates create an ideal environment for coffee production. This Gesha was chosen for its exquisite cup profile. Gesha is an intensely flavored and very complex coffee varietal. Gesha’s unique characteristics associated with extremely high cup quality are best expressed when cultivated at over 1,250 meters above sea level.

The West Valley is one of Costa Rica’s most dynamic and multifaceted regions in the production of high-quality coffees, thanks in part to its numerous micro-climates.
