Finca Santa Ana is a remote farm off the electrical grid at high altitude, benefiting from a mild climate with a warm stream of wind from the Pacific Ocean—perfect conditions for the prized Gesha varietal. The farm has an average yearly rainfall of 2200 mm, relative humidity of 60%, volcanic soils, and plenty of shade from native trees like Gravilea, Cuje, Pine, Cypress, Mundani, and Oak. Fernando Diaz has set aside 5.4 hectares of his land as a forest reserve. From this area, rainwater is collected throughout the year as a reserve supply for harvest season. Finca Santa Ana composts the unused pulp from coffee cherries to be used as fertilizer on the trees in the coming year. Direct Trade Finca Santa Ana is a longtime Direct Trade partner of our sister company, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. The farm has had multiple Cup of Excellence appearances, including #4 in 2010 and #16 in 2015. The carefully supervised quality control at the farm is evident in the cup. As part of our Direct Trade buying philosophy at PT's and Bird Rock, we always look for ways to invest in our farming partners in addition to paying a good price for the coffee. In 2015 Bird Rock shared an investment with Fernando to plant new seed stock at the farm with about 15 new varietals, including Mokka and Gesha. These shrubs are giving Finca Santa Ana more varietals to sell to specialty roasters and adding another dimension to this already great farm.
