La Plaza (The Field) was baptized with this name because in the highest and flat area of the farm, there is a soccer field that is known in our country as “Plaza de futbol”.
La Plaza is located in Santa Rosa de León Cortés, at 1890 to 2050 m.a.s.l. It has several varieties as Catuaí, Caturra and Villa Sarchí. All of them well separated and well-treated in order to obtain our golden bean.
After two years of starting the business, we had the opportunity to acquire this property that is located very close to our Micro Mill, which meant a lot of advantages. This is why we decided to take the risk and bought it. As a result, we´ve had very good acceptance by our customers in the first cuppings. This is our fourth consecutive year participating in CoE.
