The coffee of ForestCascades - Costa Rica

Highest Quality Coffee only

100% of our Costa Rica coffee comes from the "Arabica" species, the "Caturra" and "Catuaí" varieties, which produce a high quality bean and a cup with better organoleptic characteristics: pleasant, aromatic, and select.  We do not plant lower quality coffees like "Robusta" or the Catimores.


Our coffee is grown in the central valley area of San Ramon in the volcanic and low-acidic fertile soil, conditions ideal for production. All of our coffee is grown between 3,000 and 5,000 feet above sea level with temperatures between 65ºF – 82F. Our coffee all enjoy the view and precipitation of the Pacific Ocean.  The highly selective method of picking is used: only ripe berries are selected (at optimal ripeness); this allows the coffee to be more easily washed. Our processing equipment is able to separate high quality beans at a level in excess of 97%.  We only pick, process and sell ripe fruit, which guarantees better cup quality.

We use the wet processing method removing the pulp and washing the beans on harvest day only minutes from where the coffee berries are picked. In addition, our micro-beneficio equipment uses a minimal of water in the process thus eliminating the environmental problem of disposing contaminated water.  Next comes the fermenting process, to eliminate the remaining pulp, sugars and any remaining defective beans. All pulp and waste water is organically composted with worms to produce the fertilizer for next year’s crop.


We use the sun exclusively to dry our coffee.  Our drying racks, constructed with screen bottoms, allow the air circulation evenly around the beans to assure through drying in 7 to 10 days. These racks of coffee are placed in an open sided greenhouse type structure to protect from possible rain. The natural sun-dry method is the preferred system of drying for the specialty coffees demanded by the world markets.


Our goal is continued improvement of the coffee while offering a profitable crop to the farmers and decent pay for the workers. For more than two centuries, the coffee production in Costa Rica has contributed significantly to their prosperity and contributed to the difference between Costa Rica and its neighbors.

Sustainable Agricultural Production


In general terms, Costa Rican coffee plantations do not use harsh chemicals; underbrush control is done with a mix of environmentally products and manual labor. The use of chemicals is carried out on a plant by plant basis and not by air. Unlike other crops, no water has been found contaminated by the agrochemicals used in the cultivation of coffee.


The majority of Costa Rican coffee fields operate under intermittent shade. This has various positive effects: the decomposition of leaves returns abundant organic matter to the soil; additionally, on the steep-sloped plantations they contribute to reduced erosion. The coffee fields constitute, after natural forests, the second most important “forest” in Costa Rica, contributing to the conservation of the hydrographic valley and a clean environment.
