Costa Rica - San Francisco - Honey
Honey, Apricot, Lemon
San Francisco is the name of one district in the ‘Cordillera Central’ also called ‘La Zona de los Santos’ but this is also the name of the farm from Edgar Fallas Solis, his wife Ligia and their son Willian. The family owns 10-12 hectares of coffees intercropped with avocados, citrus and banana trees. The farm is split in a few different parcels culminating from 1,400 to 2,000 metres above sea level. The micro lots are produced at 1,800 + masl.
Edgar is the second generation working on this 55-year-old farm originally planted with Caturra and now the addition of Catuai and Catimore. They get seedlings from the national research centre Icafe. At the moment the fertilization plan is 50/50 organic and chemical but Edgar would like to make it 75/25. Protecting environment is really important for him. A lot of biodynamic technics are used in the farm (use of garlic, chilli, intercropping, etc). He’s really aware of climate change and of the necessity of adapting his farming.
