La Pollera is a farm owned by Randall Fallas Mora in the Tarrazu region. It is expertly processed by the Rio Jorco mill. Rio Jorco’s owners are third generation in the business and are very focused on quality and conservation of nature. Rio Jorco is equipped with a complete wet-mill and dry-mill which allows them to control quality throughout the process. They process coffee from their farm, Los Lobos, but also purchase cherry from producers from the area. Producers are compensated based on cup quality and get recognition for selling a microlot.
Our importer and Rio Jorco have teamed up to donate to the Costa Rica Youth Orchestra based on the amount of coffee sold. Today over 140 students ages 6-20 years old from from the Acosta Cantons form part of two orchestras, “Tomad de Acosta” and “The Mountain”.
