Finca Sumava De Lourdes is an ambitious project which was put together by a famous Costa Rican coffee exporter Francisco Mena and a Czech investor. The farm is located about an hour from the capital in the region of Lourdes de Naranjo. Šumava is a model farm which uses modern technologies and new trends in ecologically sustainable farming. The farm uses eco-pulpers together with a retention field for discarded water, which is later used as a fertilizer for coffee plants.
Roger was a fruit delivery but he wanted to know what was the final destination of coffee for them, later decided to put their own Micro-Mill with the help of their children and give it an added value, the name de La Casona se lo They gave in honour to Roger's grandmother (Doña Lina), This microlot was produced by Roger Solis himself, at the highest part of his farm, “San Francisco”, the peak reaching just above 1900 meters. The farm grows majority Catuai, with a bit of Caturra, and some small plots of Geisha and Villalobos. The city of San Marcos is in the Talamanca Sierra highlands, with peaks reaching as high as 3000 meters. It’s an ideal microregion and climate for growing coffee with rich volcanic soil, great altitude, and is shaded from the hot afternoon suns by mountain peaks.
