Costa Rica Finca Adelina
Farm El Cipres belongs to Jesus Mora Camacho and Adelina Camacho Portugues. This farm was obtained since 1936 and originally its owner was Policarpo Camacho Portugues. It has been asserted that a very traditional family immigrated to this farm decades ago and became founders; since they were one of the first families of the area to be established in Llano Bonito de Leon Cortes. This family with a solid base of traditional values dedicated their lives to the agricultural practices of coffee and livestock. They raised their children to be hard working people with a higher consciousness to take care of the soil. The legacy of their family has continued to be carried by generations and their goal is to perpetuate the practices of high end quality coffee. The family Camacho believes in the importance of being humble and honest farmers to create a chain of good role models in the agriculture field. Currently, the farm counts with an area of production of 0.7 hectares.
Process of production: Diversified activity with shade such as Orange, Avocado, Banana, Plantain, Poro, Cedar and Indian Cane as well as fruit trees that provide food and shelter to native birds of the region.
