HACIENDA RIO NEGRO

Located in remote southern Costa Rica, the Rio Negro region enjoys a well-defined rainy season, which promotes optimal coffee flowering and high quality production. This is an area rich in coffee culture, where producers are committed to quality and proud of what they produce. There are approximately 700 acres of coffee in production with the majority of the trees being the Catuai and Caturra variety. In 2001, Hacienda Rio Negro became the first farm in Costa Rica to become Rainforest Alliance Certified.
