Today you find the immaculate Finca La Isabel nestled in the highlands of Llano Bonito, Naranjo in Costa Rica’s West Valley. This particular region is cool and quiet with ideal conditions for growing quality coffee. Don Claudio and his family make the most of these natural surroundings, working with several different varieties, including Caturra, Villalobos, Geisha, and various Sarchimors. The whole family is involved in every aspect of work on the farm – from the nurseries up until the final moments of the harvest – in pursuit of that great quality they’ve been taught to value as part of the family heritage. The farm has its own nursery that also produces seedlings for Don Claudio’s other small farms. This specific lot is produced from a plot of land that was planted with Red Catuai and Caturra trees. The farm is currently producing at 100% capacity, and for the future the family aims to focus on improving productivity and continuing to renovate old or sick plants within the farm. Also they are starting to work with different varieties and see how they produce on their conditions.
