Finca Villa Triunfo is located in the upper part of Naranjo with a nice view of the Central Valley of Costa Rica. It has volcanic soils, a cool climate and cold temperatures during the night which provide perfect growing conditions for coffee. This farm is unique in that it has Starmaya and Marsellesa cultivars which were both developed as a joint venture between ECOM Sustainable Management Services and CIRAD (agricultural development in France).
The Honey Process
This coffee was produced via the Red Honey method, which leaves a significant amount of residual mucilage on the seed prior to drying. After drying, the parchment appears red in color, resulting in the “Red Honey” distinction. This process ensures that some of the flavor of the coffee fruit is present in the cup and creates a pleasantly creamy body.
