If you as a Coffee Entrepreneur are looking for perfection, you should choose to invest in Specialty Coffees. Specialty Coffee is the closest you’ll ever be to heaven/perfection. You should invest according to your possibilities and risk tolerance. Let’s say your risk Tolerance is high and you like high-profit margins, then choose Volume over Specialty or a mix of both. Choosing Volume means you need large land extensions. But let’s say your risk Tolerance is low but you like perfection then choose Specialty over Volume. For Specialty or Micro Lot Coffees, you don’t need large extensions of land because you’re going to focus on quality and elevations you’ll produce less and sell to more buyers at higher prices.

Let’s say you choose Volume, make sure you have a defined market, or be sure that the coffee business you buy from already has coffee buyers, whether international or local. If the farm already sells the coffee to a local buyer at international market prices, you can always generate a good income.

It is easier to maintain Excellent Cupping Scores with Specialized Coffee Micro Lot Farm than with coffee farms that produce Volume for obvious reasons. With Bulk Coffee it doesn’t mean that you will not have Coffee Lots that reach high cupping scores, on the contrary, you can do a little of both. What I mean is that with Specialized Coffee Micro Lot Farm your focus will be managing micro lots with different Arabica exotic varieties with the aim to win the Cup of Excellence which will validate the quality of your coffee and will open the doors to Specialized Coffee Buyers. The Specialized Coffee market can pay 4 times the price of the NYSE coffee prices. Either way, it is always good to be participating in events such as the Cup of Excellence to validate the quality of your coffees.

Today I bring to your attention a business that has been a winner of the Cup of Excellence in Costa Rica but also remains among the top 16 positions of the Cup of Excellence at the national level in Costa Rica. This Company’s Specialty Coffees are always scoring a cup of 88-92 points with coffees such as Villa Sarchi, Kenya SL, Geisha, and Típica. The processes with which it obtains these scores are Semi-Washed, Washed, Honey, and Natural. This coffee is SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) quality. This Micro Mill Micro Lot Coffee Farm is managed by a 3rd generation coffee grower native from this area. In this area the entire family has remained in the coffee business, this family is always among the top 16 positions of the Costa Rica Cup of Excellence.


Costa Rica is the 15th coffee-producing country in the world, the country has opted for the quality of cultivation and processing. This is reflected in the price paid internationally for Costa Rican coffee.
