Lot#12 Flor de Café
Producer: Carlos Eduardo Barrantes
The farm is called Flor de Café that means Coffee Flower. This name was chosen by my daughters Karla and Cristel in one occasion that we walked by the plantation and the plants were flowery. With much admiration to see how beauty is the plant when the flowering period is that they suggested to call the farm in this way.
I have 15 years of having this farm. I inherited it from my father Manuel Barrantes who taught us to work and value the work that is done to the coffee. This farm is located 1500 meters high in Lourdes de Naranjo. In this farm are planted about 8000 Kenya coffee trees and the area of the farm is 4 hectares.
