SOIL & SOIL CONSERVATION

Bazan soil which is dark yellow and red clay,  is  well  suited  to long-term  crops with forest-like  foliage,  as well  as fruit  trees and industrial  crops  such  as  coffee and rubber. Especially for coffee plants, these trees thrive on the bazan soil.

Besides good soil, ecological soil practices produce hearty plants. Good soils suppress disease-causing and pest organisms produce natural hormones and nutrients that help plants grow, and consume pollutants in the soil.  The practices of using organic compost build the soil’s microbiological life, retain moisture, and are catalysts for nutrient processing.  If the soil is balanced, the products that come from the soil reflect this same nutritional balance, thus making a healthier food product. 
 
SHADE
 
Shade coffee is not only ecologically friendly, it also better tastes. Shade-grown coffee fruits mature slowly, allowing the natural sugars in the coffee beans to fully develop, creating a rich, intense flavor.
 
ALTITUDE

Arabica coffees grow best between 1,000 meters (3,300 ft) and 2,000 meters (6,600 ft) above sea level. The higher altitude produces a denser, less porous bean with less moisture and more flavors.
 
QUALITY PICKING AND PROCESSING

Selective picking to gather red and ripe cherries for processing, strict quality standards to filter out defective or unripe beans and ensure a clean drying process are the key ingredients to a good cup of coffee.
