Costa Rica

Hacienda Pilas is located in the Costa Rica’s West Valley in the Naranjo area known for known for its rich volcanic soil and high-quality coffee.

Owned and managed by Eduardo Gurdian Pacheco, a passionate and experienced coffee agronomist with extensive experience in Costa Rica and Sumatra. Eduardo’s family have generations of coffee growing experience in Costa Rica, something that shows in the quality of the estate’s coffee.

The attention to detail on the estate is eye-opening especially as climate change begins to make an impact. Rains are not as predictable which means different varietals are being tried and trees that struggle are removed and replaced. Eduardo has brought in bees to help with pollination and even they are looked after carefully. [“they are my little workers, part of the family”].

Hacienda Pilas is dedicated to the growth and production of coffee under strict sustainable and social labour practices. Currently the Hacienda employs more than 30 permanent workers, plus 200 pickers during the harvest season.
