Property Description Make your dreams come true at this coffee hacienda in Costa Rica. It has been a single family plantation since 1978 and now they are giving someone else the opportunity to fullfil their dreams.

Finca Los Guayabos is located at the foot of the Barva Volcano, in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. The farm’s area is approximately 11 hectares (27 acres), 9 hectares (22 acres) of which is dedicated to growing 8 varietals of premium shade grown arabica coffee, and the remaining land consisting of fruit orchards and environmental corridors. The average altitude of the farm is 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) above sea level. The rich volcanic soil, comfortable altitude and stable climate combine to create a great environment for growing quality coffee.

The farm has 5 homes. They can be used as income producing rentals. The main house measures 513 m2 and has 5 bedrooms/4.5 bathrooms. It is the largest house on the farm and is built in traditional English style home with cathedral ceilings, beautiful terracotta tiles and wrap around balconies, perfect for families looking to spend quality time together. Wake up to the sound of birds chirping, and greet the sun from your private patio as it rises over the Central Valley.

About the farm: It measures 11.5 hectares/28 acres. The farm grows premium arabica coffee. The varietals consist of 40% Caturra, 30% Cataui, 20% Obota and 10% Catimor. They are also experimenting with several rust resistant varietals including Marsellesa and Starmaya. All of the coffee is shade grown with Poro and Eucalyptus trees, which are deciduous and the resulting leaf-fall is naturally nitrogen fixing.

Since 2009 the farm has maintained the prestigious Rainforest Alliance Certification and Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality rating, and still employs the same local managerial staff since the farm’s beginning 40 years ago.

In addition, our employees use mechanical weed whackers to avoid the use of toxic herbicides. Monthly farm visits from senior Agronomists ensure strict adherence to Rainforest Alliance Certified foliar disease prevention practices. Using the analyses of our annual soil samples conducted by both CAFESA and ICafe (Coffee Institute of Costa Rica), we determine the appropriate chemical formulation of fertilizers for the coming year.
