Description

The Santa Anita Estate, located in Costa Rica’s West Valley, is a large family-run coffee farm that strikes a balance between tradition and innovation. Five generations of this family have managed this picturesque plantation and mill.
The renowned producer, Juan Manuel Sanchez Benavidez, has really impressed with the consistency and quality of his coffee. Fully shade grown and in harmony with the natural eco system and regional flora & fauna, he is paving the way to truly sustainable coffee farming. His efforts in sustainable farming have lead to his farm being the first in the world to become recognised as Carbon Neutral.
This coffee holds a degree of complexity that surprises and delights and is very sweet as it cools.

Costa Rica is nestled in the heart of Central America, and is as diverse as it is beautiful. This little country has it all; from mountains and volcanoes to rainforests that buzz with life and coastlines with great beaches and surf. With such an impressive landscape, combined with its stable government and relative safety compared to its Central American neighbours, Costa Rica is a well established tourist destination and around 1.5 million visitors are drawn to its shores, forests and mountains each year.

The nation’s stability and forward thinking governance means Costa Rica has a much higher standard of living than its neighbours, making it a much more expensive country to visit or do business in. The coffee industry is well regulated by the national body Icafe. Under Icafe’s watchful eye, farm workers are monitored and protected with minimum living standards and widely enforced minimum wages for all employees.
