The 9 Leiva Siblings and the 25 children of these siblings own together an integrated farm, where they not just grow coffee but also strawberries, raspberries, cattle for milk and other fruits and vegetables to provide to the national supermarkets. The Florida farm is one of the most sustainable and integrated farms in Copey in Dota Valley. The characteristics of the Florida farm and the soil give this coffee unique and amazing flavors reflected in the cup. Such a delicate coffee must come from Copey one of Costa Rica most famous micro regions for COE coffees and for extraordinary coffee plantations.

The coffee plantation in this farm is really young, they started growing the first Geisha plants in 2015 and the rest of the plants they have nowadays they grew them in 2016. They hope to grow more varieties like Geisha, Sl-28 and Mokka in the next years.

Farm Size (ha): 13.5 hectares (12 hectares are planted with Geisha,1 hectare with Kenya and 100 baby plants of Mokka)

Process:

Red Honey:after de-pulping and demucilaging they leave part of the mucilage (70%) in the parchment and then dry in African beds for around 15 days.
