Costa Rica – Don Senel

Don Senel's coffee farming exemplifies sustainable, eco-friendly practices. He uses trees like Guaba, Jocote, Anona, Higuerilla, and Poro to create a canopy, shielding plants from excess sun and promoting soil health and biodiversity.

His use of Bioles, natural microorganisms for pest control, minimizes chemical pesticide use, safeguarding environmental and worker health. These traditional, ecologically mindful methods result in superior coffee and set a standard for sustainable agriculture in the industry.
