Shade-Grown Coffee Plants
The farm coffee plants are shade-grown. Shade-grown coffee plants are cultivated under a canopy of trees. A canopy of assorted types of shade trees created to cultivate shade-grown coffee forms a forest that consists of several layers of trees, such as fruit trees, hardwood, trees, and many other assorted bushes and plants. The natural canopy under which shade coffee is grown often provides a refuge for many species of birds and a habitat for numerous species of animals and plants. More specifically, shade-grown trees house two-thirds of the bird species found in natural forests in the same geographic areas. The environmental friendly cultivation practices of shade grown coffee have resulted in an increase of this new trend.
The farm has a Beneficio, where the fresh coffee berries are brought for pulping, fermentation and drying.
