- The elevation that coffee is grown can determine the flavor of the coffee. At Oldemar’s farm, the entirety of the farm is right at about 1100m above sea level. This level of elevation gives the coffee a great flavor and taste.
- The locals in Costa Rica (Ticos as they prefer to be called) do not care for organic coffee. It is a lot more expensive and to them is not worth the extra money. They would much rather go buy the regular coffee from the supermarket than pay for the organic coffee.
- Selling the coffee beans as cherries is the hardest part of farming coffee. However you can only really sell coffee for a profit when you toast the coffee to get the coffee beans that we use.
