Finca Alto de Abra is owned by the Hernández family on the slopes of the stunning Barva volcano in Costa Rica. The Finca has been in the family for five generations since 1935. In recent years, the Hernández family has pivoted to high-end specialty coffee and introduced exotic varieties such as Java and Geisha. Geisha was initially collected from the forests of Ethiopia in the 1930s and, by the 1950s, had made its way to the CATIE seed bank in Costa Rica. The Geisha grown at Alto de Abra is from the same genetic lineage as those collected from Ethiopia almost 100 years ago. This lot was processed via the anaerobic washed method, where the coffee cherries are de-pulped and fermented in barrels without oxygen, selecting for certain types of microbes to carry out the fermentation. This increases complexity and creates a lactic mouthfeel. All coffees from Alto de Abra are Rainforest Alliance certified, and they follow the NAMA (Low Carbon Coffee) program.
