Costa Rica
La Isla Farm – Luis Jiménez Padilla
La Isla Farm is located in Naranjo in the famous West Valley in the heart of Costa Rica. Luis Jiménez Padilla's 11-hectare farm is named after the mountain on which it is located. La Isla means "The Island" – because the farm is located on an island between two rivers. The farm has its own micro mill. Luis Jiminez Padilla comes from a coffee farming family and continues the business. For his farm, he has selected special coffee varieties that are well suited to the area. This has enabled him to reduce the use of chemicals. The West Valley, by the way, is world famous for its Arabica beans with balanced acidity and body.
Variety & Processing
100% Arabica
SL-28 Variety
Red Honey
SL 28 is an expensive variety with larger than average beans, bred from a Tanzanian variety. This SL 28 coffee was processed immediately after harvest using the Red Honey process. After removing the pulp from the bean, the coffee was slowly dried on raised beds for three weeks.

In so-called red honey processing, the coffee beans are laid out to dry in the shade, if possible. The beans are completely de-pulped and are only coated with a layer of mucilage, which turns reddish during drying and gives off a natural sweetness in the bean.

La Isla

Our first coffee from La Isla Farm in Costa Rica has arrived. Notes of gooseberry, mango and toffee await you in the cup. This coffee, produced by Luis Jiménez Padilla and his mother María Marta (see photo), contains everything you need for an exceptionally delicious cup of speciality coffee at home.

Commitment to nature

Luis Jiménez Padilla’s family protects water sources and other plants on the farm. To do this, they have planted 1,250 trees in recent years, which provide shade for the coffee plants and serve as living fences and windbreaks. This has led to an increase in wildlife, including toucans, butterflies, bees and mammals.

Sustainable cultivation and quality awareness
Similar to wine, the origin, cultivation and careful harvesting also form the basis for a speciality coffee. For our coffees, we use only ripe and hand-picked 100% Arabica coffee beans, because the elaborate harvest by hand is an essential quality criterion. Our highland coffees are natural products and are grown in shady forest gardens in a nature-friendly way. This preserves the biodiversity in the growing region. The coffee cherries can ripen slowly at cool altitudes with nourishing and fertile soil conditions. The coffee plants have more time to develop their characteristic and fruity aromas under these optimal climatic conditions near the equator.  
Freshly roasted by hand
All Röststätte coffees are gently roasted by hand in Berlin so that the natural flavours can fully develop without creating undesirable acids. For a distinctive body and a versatile taste profile in the cup, we want to emphasise and optimally process the special features of the respective variety, farm and origin of the coffee with our roasting. The aim is to exploit the full potential of the green coffee through our roasting process and to highlight the valuable work of the producers in the growing countries. These are our quality principles – from source to the final cup.
