Finca Šumava de Lourdes

is an ambitious project which was put together by a famous Costa Rican coffee exporter Francisco Mena and a Czech investor. The farm is located about an hour from the capital in the region of Lourdes de Naranjo (map). The idea behind this project is to build a state-of-the-art farm, which will benefit from a huge coffee know-how and strong financial background.

Model and modern farm

Šumava is a model farm which uses modern technologies and new trends in ecologically sustainable farming. The farm uses eco-pulpers together with a retention field for discarded water, which is later used as a fertilizer for coffee plants.

Many different varieties

Šumava has also an exclusive access to the international bank of coffee seeds (CATIE). On the farm, you can spot several different cultivars being planted, e.g.: geisha, sl28, ethiopian heirloom and mix varieties, caturra, villa sarchi, mocca and many others.

Processing

All coffee is processed in a beautiful stainless steel mill, which is equipped by the so called "desmusilaginadoras", i.e. eco-pulpers. This lot was processed using the so called double fully washed method. The eco pulper is set in a way, that cherries go through with almost zero mucilage. Therefore, the taste profile is little bit similar to washed coffees. Depulped cherries are transported to fermentation tanks and left there for 24 hours. After washing them again, they are moved to African beds and slowly dried for approx. 20-25 days, which helps to achieve a longer aging period.

Success in short time

Even though this is only the 6th production year under the new ownership, Finca Šumava has already won the prestigious Cup of Excellence in 2016.
We usually visit Finca Šumava in March to cup through the fresh crop. This year we purchased 5 microlots, including one geisha nanolot.
