Farm Details

At the beginning of the 19th century, when coffee production was in its early beginnings in America, without knowing it, two pioneers and entrepreneurs, Alejo C. Jiménez in Costa Rica and Wilhelm Kahle in the south of Mexico, shared the same dream: “To produce the best coffee in the world” to satisfy the new demanding European gourmet market. 

Today, descendants of these visionary farmers still produce coffee within the same ideals of excellency and top quality that inspired their ancestors that continue with the tradition in Costa Rica. 

The production process starts with the planting of the coffee trees on highly fertile volcanic soil above 1400 meters above sea level (SHB) in 3 different regions from Costa Rica. 

Nowadays, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to further enhance the principles of quality inherited by our founders by adding the value of conservancy of natural resources, through the acquisition of extensions of natural rainforest for its protection and conservation. These facts, not just words, are small actions taken by one family to reduce air contamination and global warming. This is the contribution we want to make to mankind, this is the new awareness we want our future generations to inherit.

    Worth the price?

    This was the question I asked when a friend of mine posted on a group chat. @ $27/lb is it worth it. He said he thought so. I scoffed…. Only to buy two lbs to try. First pour over was sublime. My wife and I have a new favorite.

    Apex espresso

    It tastes really nice and clean, and quite like the description for the body of the coffee and feel of it in the mouth is lasting.
    I’ve made it with my aeropress and French press also (so while not the purist version) the flavours have come out nicely for the morning and afternoon, satisfying after a VERY LONG RUN!
