The farm "Finca Jardin" is surrounded by a neatly whitewashed fence. You access the farm through a large gate and have the feeling of entering a beautiful park. Bougainvillea in the most glorious colors adorn the roadside towards the farm house. That Carole Zbinden loves her farm is evident in all these details. Carole renews her farm constantly, following a tough 5 year program.
Family Zbinden is living in the beautiful region of Carizal de Alajuela of Costa Rica for several generations now, their roots are in Switzerland. A part of her family still lives in Switzerland and strong ties to the family are very important and well maintained.
We are very excited to present Carole's coffee to you. Enjoy!
