These beans are farmed in the West Valley of Naranjo Alajuela at an altitude of 1,550 meters above sea level and are harvested from December through March. The beans are processed using a semi-washed, honey process meaning that some or all of the sticky, mucilage is left on the beans during processing. As the mucilage dries, it takes on a honey color. These beans are grown on Geovanny Gonzalez Lopez’s farm which he inherited from his father. The original coffee plants were brought to Barranca from Atenas 150 years ago by his great grandfather. Geovanny’s father and grandfather grew the coffee for their own use and when Geovanny took over the farm, he bought more land to plant more coffee. Today, he is able to sell his coffee as a micro lot.
