About the coffee
Joicafe, led by Joiner and his family, transformed a chilly area near Costa Rica's highest point into a thriving coffee farm. Initially cultivating vegetables, they defied conventional belief and successfully grew coffee. Joiner, his wife Vanessa, and their four daughters actively contribute, constantly improving and experimenting with new varieties. El Bambu, their farm at 1760 masl, produces Catuai variety coffee, benefitting from ideal conditions and meticulous management. The Alvarado sisters, particularly Wendy, play a crucial role in wet mill operations, earning acclaim for their processing skills. The family's dedication extends to precise harvesting, fermentation, and drying, culminating in exceptional micro-lot coffees.
