The mountain was named “Chirripo,” meaning “land of eternal waters”, by Native Americans because there are many lakes and streams around the mountain. All the farms are scattered amongst steep hillsides that climb to peaks of near 2100 metres and have really just been started within the last 8 or so years.
Imperio Rojo the name is after a type of tree that grows very tall and many are seen on the drive through the farm. The average plants here are about six or seven years old with some new growth coming in. Almost all the coffee here is Catuai with a bit of Caturra.
Tasting notes apple, bombed tropical fruit, caramel, chocolate, cocoa, cream, lemon, raisin, bright body.
