The coffee story

El Raudal Farm was founded and worked since 1950 by a family´s woman Mrs. Angela and then her daughter Mrs. Amalia.  El Raudal selects the best cherry beans to achieve a high-quality cup in an eco-friendly way.   The farm has an area of 13 hectares, of which 10 are planted in coffee and the rest are conservation areas.  

The plantation maintains a balance between large trees that cover the sun and protect animal biodiversity.  

Initially, the farm was cultivated with Robusta coffee, then with the Arabic varieties of Caturra, and more recently with the variety of Obata.  The north side adjoins the Mancarrón River, and this area is maintained with vegetation and trees to protect the environment.

The process

Pulped just after the handpicking process, one night of rest into tanks and then the next day starts the sun drying process on drying beds.

Cental Valley coop w/ blends & single-farm lots

Coopelibertad R.L. was born in 1961, in one of the most significant moments for cooperativism in Costa Rica and it came to represent a solution for coffee producers in the Heredia area to obtain better results from their agricultural work. Since the foundation, the Cooperative has worked shoulder to shoulder with its associates, in the search for the common good, and thus to support the improvement of its economic and social situation; through the cultivation of coffee. In a large number of farms distributed through the Cental Valley, the cooperative associates are concerned about taking care of the coffee plants. Mainly cultivated with varieties such as Caturra and Catuaí, each farmer applies sustainable techniques that will benefit their productivity and cup quality. From September until March, the cherry is collected from the farms and then is taken to the mill. The coffee fruit goes through each of the operational steps constantly monitored by strictly quality controls.
