Martha Morena Castillblanco acquired her farm, Finca Alejandrita, 7 years ago to combat the powerful force of larger coffee estates. That year, she gave birth to her daughter, Alejandrita, hence the name of the farm. Today, thanks to her careful agricultural methods and attention to crops – Finca Alejandrita produces excellent quality coffee.

Finca Alejandrita

Surrounded by the wild trees of the Datanlí El Diablo Nature Reserve, Martha ensures her coffee trees are intercropped with taller shade trees to create an agroforestry system. She carefully prevents soil erosion by planting live barriers, or a line of sturdy trees at the base of slopes to keep topsoil intact and healthy. These methods create a healthy environment for the coffee trees to maintain high yields and quality.
