Costa Rica Vista Al Valle Zapote Honey

San Juanillo, West Valley

In the rolling hills of Naranjo, where birds seem to outnumber people fifty to one, the husband-and-wife team Oldemar Arrieta Lobo and Marlene Brenes Morera run three small farms, of which Finca Zapote is one. They’re among the vanguard of specialty growers, who have, in the past couple of decades, transformed Costa Rica into an origin renowned for its small-scale specialty growers. Now, their honey coffee, which is beautifully fruited, silky, and sweet, is considered a prime example of what the country does best.
