This beautiful honey processed Sarchimor variety epitomizes Finca Sircof’s relentless pursuit of quality. This high-altitude coffee is graced by the gentle weather of the Central Valley coffee zone. Local farmers care for their land and a diversity of crops surrounding Finca Sircof. Many of these farms border protected forest areas, providing a positive co-existence between sustainable farming and a prospering environment. Sircof specialty coffee starts with a careful collection of the ripe Arabica beans, immediately processed in the artisan wet mill right on their farm.
Almost a decade ago, Marcos and Maricela Oviedo of Finca Sircof faced a terrifying truth. Their family coffee farm could not survive if they continued to operate as they had for the prior two generations. Risking all of their savings, the Oviedos decided to build a micro mill. With more control of the processing and production chain, they are now able to yield the best possible quality coffee. The Oveidos continued to find ways to improve their production and cupping scores and now produce some of the best lots the area region has to offer. Marcos and Maricela have partnered with other producers in the area through Farmers Project Costa Rica to build sustainable direct trade relationships with roasters all over the world. At Prevail, we consider ourselves blessed to be one of the early roasting partners of Farmers Project Costa Rica and the Oviedo family.
