ABOUT CAFE LA CUMBRE
Specialty coffee from the renowned Tarrazú region
3rd generation farmers
Café La Cumbre is a family-owned company with roots dating back over 90 years, when the Jiménez Valverde family began producing coffee in small quantities on the same lands that are currently cultivated.
Generation after generation, production grew, and in 2014, Minor Jiménez Abarca (third generation) and his wife Nancy Gaitán Cruz gave it the name Café La Cumbre.
Minor is an agricultural ingeneer with a huge interest in innovation and sustainability. He focuses on cultivating varieties that develop their maximum genetic expression, with very healthy and nutritionally balanced crops. Combined with innovative drying processes, they consistently obtain coffee with cupping scores exceeding SCA 85 every year.

They expanded the drying space with patios and beds, constructed a building for the installation of a dryer and a roaster, both of which feature high-tech environmentally friendly and efficient technology. They also built a dry mill to perform quality control, finally ensuring control over the entire production process, guaranteeing traceability, origin, and quality. By partnering with Groun
