The environment is incredibly wild and coffee grows densely amongst shade trees of banana and inga, the potassium provided to the soil by the banana trees is elemental to the nutrition of the coffee on the farm. The farm produces coffee at altitudes of between 1250 to 1560 metres above sea level and has an annual rainfall of approximately 1800 millimetres. These factors, along with the owners inherited passion and dedication for growing exceptional coffee, combine to produce lively, bright and complex flavour nuances in the cup.

Only 30 hectares of the farm are allocated for coffee production. The rest of the land has been set aside for the growth of different varieties of pine and oak, and it is this factor along with a clear commitment to sustainable environmental practice that has resulted in Rainforest Alliance certification for the farm. All power on the farm is provided by solar panels and a rainwater harvesting tank which produces hydroelectricity.
