History of Coffee in Puerto Rico

At the end of the 19th century, Puerto Rico produced so much coffee that it became the world’s sixth largest exporter of coffee. In the 20th century, coffee was grown in Rincon and similar coastal latitudes, which are less ideal for quality coffee beans than the famous central mountains. The central mountains, areas like Adjuntas in the high cordillera, are over 3,000 ft altitude and perfect for coffee production.

Perhaps the pride Puerto Ricans hold for their coffee was the basis for such record production. Even today, when caficultura suffers from scarcity of labor, there is no slope too steep for coffee trees. Puerto Rico’s cool mountainous climate, with temperatures that can go down into the 40’s, is an ideal setting for great coffee. Experts talk about beans grown at the highest slopes as offering the very best cup of coffee.

Climate is not the only variable in the production of great coffee: varieties, farming methods, and great care in processing and preparation of beans are just as important. Adherence to proven principles and attention to details are vital to distinguish great coffee as “special”. Coffee lovers are discovering Puerto Rico’s Sandra Farms Specialty Coffee - The " Other " American coffee. We produce our specialty coffee meticulously in the central mountains of Puerto Rico. The quality of our coffee depends in great part on the unique micro-climate created by alttitude, trade-winds and these craggy mountains of the cordillera central.

And our own Specialty Sandra Farms Coffee. Available in different sizes.
