Growing Altitude: 1,800 masl
Finca Piedra Alta is a 4ha farm owned and operated by the Araya Acuña family near the village of La Piedra de Rivas in the micro-region of Chirripó. This Red Catuai microlot is grown at altitudes of 1,850masl. The Araya Acuña family has been dedicated to agriculture for generations; from vegetables and blackberries, to cattle farming. However, the steepness of their ground and low productivity for some of these crops compelled the family turn Piedra Alta into a coffee farm to showcase the excellent altitude and growing conditions for coffee. The success of this transition came from a combination of experience and passion from the parents, Mario and Rosita, and a matching enthusiasm and youthful entrepreneurship from their sons and daughter.
