About Coffea Diversa
Located in a very remote area in the Biolley district, south of Costa Rica, is Coffea Diversa, a unique place with the largest private collection of coffee in the world. Founded in 2003 by Mr. Gonzalo Hernandez.
His unique idea was to create a botanical coffee garden with multiple coffee variants but maintaining the same terroir. Coffee farms all over the world are characterized by the fact that they are generally mono-varietal plantations, in other words, they plant just one botanical variety or cultivar, normally Caturra, Catuai, Catimor, Typica, or Bourbon. In the case of Coffea Diversa, they grow many different rare coffees in one garden; in fact, they have the largest private coffee collection in the world with over 800 coffee species, botanical varieties, mutants, and cultivars so far.
Gonzalo Hernandez expanded and now owns two coffee gardens, one in Guatemala and another one in Costa Rica. The Guatemala farm is located in the Suchitan micro-region in the New Oriente region for the Guatemalan coffee to grow in a exceptionally high altitude region.
