Shade-grown coffee
Shade-grown coffee is produced when coffee plants live in harmony with the large trees and the diverse plants present in a complex ecosystem, where local animals also live.

Landscape
The coffee plantation landscape involves aspects that can be seen and others that can not. Different smells, colors, flavors, sounds, and textures… that change throughout the year and even change as the day does.
