“Filter or espresso, your choice.” - Ivica Cvetanovski, Founder, Coffea Circulor
The three Valdes family farms comprise of Parana, La Cristalina and San Pablo.
Finca Cristalina plants black cedar, a tree at risk for extinction, from its own nursery in the coffee fields. The forests on the farms are source of natural richness, creating habitats for many birds and animals.
Each farm can enable great levels of production thanks to their combined total of 421,000 trees, 142,000 of which grow only on Finca La Cristalina.
Each year portions of the farm are replanted, always keeping in mind biodiversity and the environment. Coffee is washed and de-pulped at the ecological mill, where the pulp is placed in a compost treatment to be converted to organic fertilizer for the coffee trees.
The coffee is hand picked, washed 24 hours and dried on raised beds.
