ABOUT

Imported from the island of Cuba in 1779, coffee production quickly established Costa Rica as a model for its Central American neighbours by innovating at both the scientific and agricultural level, particularly in terms of its use of shade.

These innovations, combined with the exceptional climatic conditions and preserved ecosystem of its highlands, allow farmers to produce coffee of a particularly high quality. The Tico selection comes from the Central Valley, a historical coffee-producing region in Costa Rica. The plots are cultivated under permanent and protective shade in rich and fertile soils at an altitude of between 1,000 and 1,600 metres, producing coffees with an intense and complex cup.

THE REGION OF Vallée Centrale

The Central Valley is Costa Rica’s historical production region. It is not only the most populated region but also the oldest coffee-producing region, with first plantations dating back to 1800.
Most of its coffees are grown under permanent and protective shade in rich and fertile clay and volcanic type soils. These soils benefit from a good organic matter and texture thanks to the neighbouring volcanoes of Irazu, Barva and Poas, allowing farmers to produce coffees of a greater intensity and complexity.
The Central Valley's landscape is marked by three volcanoes and a gentle tectonic depression, grouping the provinces of San José, Heredia and Alajuela.
