Covadonga is a small estate located in the region of Antigua, and has been a family owned enterprise for over one hundred years. Antigua is nestled within three volcanoes. The Finca Covadonga coffee farm is composed of dedicated farmers along with a vast knowledge and passion for coffee. The estate has been evolving and experimenting over the years with different shade and planting strategies as well as working with various varieties of coffee. At the farm they composted nearly 40% of our pulp from the harvest to later apply on the soil and also distribute to other small shareholder farmers that are up on the Volcán de Agua on the San Juan del Obispo side. The picking of this farm is among the most impressive we see every harvest, and the sorting is impeccable.
