The Brazilian coffee in this blend comes from a farm called Vale Do Sol. It is a female owned farm, located in the region of Minas Gerais.
The history of this farm began in 2008, with Alexandre Garcia Capelo, who was a small coffee producer and who continued his work with his son, Antonio Wander Garcia, who decided to dedicate his life to coffee production.
Bringing all his knowledge as an agronomist, Antonio Wander's son, André, also a partner at Jaguara Coffee, dedicated himself to applying the techniques learned from planting and reached good results with the applied technology. Vale do Sol is 72 hectares big, and there was an increase in preservation areas, planting trees along the springs.
All Vale do Sol crops undergo cyclical pruning in the zero harvest system. They cultivate banana trees as natural barriers to the wind. Cultivars with natural resistance to pests and diseases were planted, with an almost organic crop formation. The coffees produced by Vale do Sol are full-bodied, sweet, with a hint of milk chocolate and brown sugar.
The Costa Rican Coffee in this blend comes from Palmichal De Acosta from a farm called “Hacienda San Ignacio”. Sitting at an altitude far above 1000 masl, the height has a direct influence on the quality of the coffee. Known for specialty production, the coffees from Hacienda San Ignacio are sweet and fruity, with chocolate notes.
57% of the total area of Hacienda San Ignacio is dedicated to the protection of forests. The coffee growing areas are separated by large forests that maintain biological corridors. For 7 years, the farm has been part of the forest protection program of FONAFIFO-MINAE, which ECOM is committed to protecting more than 156 hectares of forest.
