Selva Negra Estate, Direct Trade, Rainforest Alliance Certified, Received Organic
The Selva Negra Estate has been exporting quality old style Arabica coffee, with the tradition of shaded coffee, since 1890. Remnants from the original German settlers are prevalent today on the Selva Negra Ecolodge, from Mr. Bösche's original cabin to the front wheel of the famous Terrocarril.
The estate's proprietors are committed to ecological agriculture and preserve over 300 acres of the estate that contains a vast virgin rain forest. Eddy Kühl and Mausi Hayn, descendants of the original German Immigrants, demonstrate their dedication in many ways from the use of organic fertilizer to the innovative use of coffee by-products to produce methane gas for cooking. The Kühl's house adjoins the coffee "beneficio" (processing mill), ensuring the close monitoring of production to achieve top quality coffee.
The community of La Hammonia is located right on Selva Negra Estate where its 400 residents are employed by Selva Negra's coffee production and tourism operations. They have their own school, medical clinic, community traditions and more.
To date, eight of Standing Stone's staff have had the opportunity to travel to Selva Negra, meet the owners, pick coffee and learn first hand what life as a coffee producer is like.
