About the farmers
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.
Today, 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.
Something you wanted to last forever. Not hooked on, but a taste alertness for every day active life.
It feels good that earth soil gave this kind of production to mankind.
The intelligence of man who used active volcano soil to grow fresh coffee from.
Love it and I can't imagine living without it.
I love this coffee because its so clean and pure every time. Little to no bitterness, perfect amount of sweetness, and an all around great balanced cup. One of the few coffees I can drink all day every day. Also love it on cold brew.
I got hooked on this bean when I visited a local Phoenix breakfast spot in 2016. Ever since I’ve ordered online & had it shipped to San Francisco! I can’t wait to move back to AZ & be able to stop in the shop in Tempe for a taste & to shop! Love my Cortez beans!!
I love this coffee. My whole family loves it, and I ship it to them abroad. My father is a big coffee drinker, and I have not seen him this impressed with coffee before this one. Worth the cost, would pay more to have it in stock for life!
