We are very happy to share this year a different Field Day. As a virtual event we are able to take you to the region BRUNCA. A region a bit far away from the venue during our in-person events.
Our friends at Coopeagri will be our hosts this year showing the beautiful region of Brunca in Perez Zeledón.
We will learn about their producers, their producing practices and the support they receive from Coopeagri. We will follow their traceability system, wet and dry mill, quality controls and export preps.
One of Coopeagri´s strengthens is their innovative character, and they will show us a very exclusive sub product from coffee that they actually launched last year during Sintercafé and was a complete success.
We will also visit their roaster facilities and learn about their presence in the national market.
Do not miss this visit, perfect example of how Café de Costa Rica moves forward with social and environmental responsibility.
This beautiful farm is located in Ciudad Colón, in the coffee region of Valle Central.
From mid 2017, it is managed by SMS (Sustainable Management Services) by ECOM Costa Rica. This country produces one of the best quality coffees globally speaking, but its productive areas have decreased and some of them are threaten.
Some of these threats are generational change, urban growth and aging of the farms. In Pampa y Cielo, 75% of the area has been mechanized, in activities such as soil fertilization, leaf nutrition, plagues and diseases control among others.
We will see how they have reduced the use of agrochemicals, getting ready for the next step in producing sustainable coffee.
This farm will allow SMS to be able to transfer innovation projects with a more efficient and sustainable farming model to producers.
