Finca Tobosi and Finca Copey de Dota were grouped together under the name “Hacienda Tobosi” to share a recognizable name on the international specialty market.
Tobosi previously was a plantation of ornamentals, and Finca de Copey was a paddock and wild forest.
When coffee was first considered as a crop, the different areas of the farms were carefully analyzed
in order to determine which variety would thrive in different conditions.
As a result the land was clearly divided into different plots.
The farms are managed with friendly cultural practices and quality controls based on environmental protection.
Each lot has its soil and foliar analysis to define which nutrient is what it needs for the optimal development of the grain and the plant.
A forest nursery was also created to provide the farms with shade.
The coffee cherries are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness, thus ensuring they have the
best possible sweetness and flavour prior processing.
After being sorted in a floatation tank, the cherries are very slowly dried for 30 to 35 days
on African raised beds.
