Dedication to Quality Unites Our Whole World!
Travel to the lush, remote lands where our varieties of coffee are grown, and you'll notice stunning differences in culture, customs, language, and ethnicity. But our select coffee regions also share many things in common. One of them is altitude. All our coffee is grown between 4,000 and 6,000 feet - the ideal range for growing coffee. Why, you ask? Because at that altitude, ripening times are longer and the characteristics of the coffee fruit become that much more concentrated, sharpening its aromas and flavors.
At all our estates, you'll find nurseries where coffee seedlings and replanted coffee trees are nurtured for their first 18 months. The slopes of the terraces protect the trees from mountain winds, and a steady diet of nitrogen keeps the seedlings growing healthily.
