Finca V&G (Vargas and Gutierrez) San Juanillo is the brainchild of an agronomist (Tomas Gutierrez) and an industrial engineer (Allan Vargas), who shared a vision for this 4 hectare farm in San Juanillo, Naranjo when they bought it in 2007.
The initial focus has been on experimentation with hybrid varieties that have been developed by CiCafe (coffee research institute of Costa Rica). These hybrids look to take the best qualities from different varieties; improving cup quality, yield, and resistance to disease.
We have two honey lots for the 2022 crop year: white and red honey and two naturals. They are available in 66 lb boxes with vacuum sealed bags.
White honey: Cherry, full body, juicy body, lemon tea finish, malt, milky caramel, stone fruit
Red honey: Balanced, berry fruit, juicy body, milk chocolate, natural flavors
Natural: super sweet, jammy, big mixed berry fruitiness, dark chocolate, black plum finish, as it cools it sweetens & more flavour accentuate throughout the cup.
Anaerobic Natural: Balanced, jammy body, red berry fruit, juicy, light floral, milk chocolate, natural flavors, stone fruit.
We are so happy to have these excellent examples of new hybrids and careful processing back from the team at Finca V&G, in beautiful San Juanillo.
