Exploring the Coffee Farms of Paramo, Pérez Zeledón
Nestled in the southeastern slopes of Costa Rica's Talamanca mountain range, the coffee farms of Paramo in Pérez Zeledón offer a taste of excellence. Here, the rich soils and unique climate conspire to produce coffee that's nothing short of extraordinary.
The Craft of Coffee Production
Paramo's small coffee farms stand out for their commitment to quality. Ripe, red coffee cherries are meticulously picked and then transported to the El General Mill in Pérez Zeledón. It's here that the magic happens, where the cherries undergo a fully washed process, transforming them into the vibrant green coffee beans that coffee lovers around the world have come to adore.
Pérez Zeledón's Natural Canvas
The Pérez Zeledón area is characterized by its diverse topography, abundant rivers, and a unique ecosystem, making it an ideal canvas for producing exceptional coffee. This region is graced by the presence of Costa Rica's tallest mountain, Cerro Chirripo, which adds to the charm and allure of Pérez Zeledón.
A Legacy of Coffee
Coffee isn't just a crop here; it's a part of Pérez Zeledón's history. Introduced by migrants from Costa Rica's Central Valley in the late 19th century, coffee found a perfect home in this region. The favorable climate and fertile soil led to the thriving cultivation of coffee, enriching the social and economic fabric of Pérez Zeledón. It's a legacy of values and principles built on family unity.
Quality Beyond Altitude
The coffee produced in Paramo belongs to the Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) category, indicating it's grown at elevations of 1,200 meters or higher. This unique environment allows the coffee cherries to mature slowly, absorbing more nutrients and resulting in denser, sweeter coffee beans. To maintain exceptional quality, these beans are further sorted to meet European Preparation (EP) specifications.
Costa Rica's Premium Promise
Costa Rica is renowned for delivering high-quality coffee, and Paramo is no exception. The region benefits from high-quality socio-economic infrastructure, including universal healthcare, advanced agronomy, and well-regulated agricultural sustainability programs. Choosing Costa Rican green coffee means supporting a country with a deep commitment to sustainability and quality.
