"Estate Coffee for 100 Years"


Coffee Picking On Rio Jorco Estate 1947

Our Coffee Museum, the Alfaro-Zeledon (A-Z) coffee museum, reinforces our commitment to preserve the history of this region that was founded by the pioneering efforts of Jorge Zeledon Castro, our grandfather. At our museum you can see antique coffee processing machines as well view the coffee that grows within sight of the museum.
