Cafetalera Herbazú is a family company of coffee growers that has been dedicated to coffee growing, for over 50 years. We are the proud owners of our plots and started with the milling process in the year 2001, because of the low coffee prices in the market, searching for an alternative that would allow us to keep alive the coffee activity.
The Barrantes family is considered one of the first pioneers of the micro-mill revolution in Costa Rica . They are consistently ranked among the best farms in the country and in COE. We are located at 1500 meters above sea level in Lourdes of Naranjo, were the climate is just perfect for the coffee farming. La Planada is a 3 hectare farm that produces the Coffee variety VILLA SARCHI which has a citric acidity, an excellent body and a very distinctive aftertaste.
We have tried to maintain a traditional, good practice production were the coffee is picked and milled the same day and the coffee parchment is dried mostly by sun.
