ABOUT THE GROWER:
Finca Kassandra, originally a cattle station, began growing coffee on 1990 with the intention of producing Estate Quality coffees. The climate, with an annual average temperature of 22ºC and good rainfall of 1400 ‒ 2000mm proved ideal. By 2003, the size of Finca Kassandra had increased enough to build its own dry mill and since then have been processing all their coffee on the estate. The Rivas family are also ecologically aware and have set aside 27 hectares of rainforest for local birds and wildlife to flourish. A huge tree planting programme has been underway across the plantation that will help not just the coffee but the birdlife as well.
