Description

Aromas del Valle, or Scents of the Valley, refers to the Dota Valley, in the heart of Tarrazú —the fifth canton in the province of Jan José. Farmers in Santa Maria de Dota enjoy the most abundant harvests in the country, averaging 3,800 pounds per hectare. Farms are prolific but small, with average farm sizes around 3.5 hectares (8.6 acres). During the harvest season, from November through March, the regions’ small farms bustle with activity as over 780,000 bushels of rich, ripe berries are hand harvested and brought to local receiving stations. Beneficio San Diego is the most modern and one of the largest mills in Costa Rica. It was established in 1888 and now specializes in the Tarrazú and Tres Ríos areas. It takes pride in striving for ever-increasing efficiency and quality standards, while working closely with producers to ensure good community relations and sustainable production for years to come.
