Finca De Dios, first established as a horse farm, is a near perfect template of conscious coffee farming by the Prentice family. Ellen slowly converted the farm into a full coffee operation after becoming an Agricultural Engineer and inheriting land from her father. Stuart, an Electrical Engineer, was able to set up a beautiful and elaborate wet mill using natural springs for irrigation. Ashley, their daughter, has a masters in Coffee Science and Economics, and assists with processing innovations and building direct relation- ships with roasters.
Combining experience with academic backgrounds, Finca De Dios has developed beautiful coffees with the aid of the rich, volcanic soils of Fraijanes and pristine processing. Combined with projects that help local schools and orphanages, the scope of impact for Finca De Dios is staggering for a farm of its size.
This is the eighth year that Ruby has had coffees from Finca De Dios, and Jared had the pleasure of visiting the farm in both 2012 and 2015. Partnering with the farm has both helped Ruby establish itself with amazing coffees in our lineup, as well as provide essential feedback to the Prentice family, helping them shape their coffee processing and establish a relationship for many years to come. As Ashley said in a recent interview:
“The most important thing is trust and transparency. This is built through stable long term-relationships and open communication.”
This lot from Finca De Dios is from Limonar, is fully washed and sun dried on patios.
12 oz / 340 g. Whole bean.

Ruby never disappoints and is one of my go to roasters for coffee ordering, as well as recommendations for others
Can't say enough good things about your coffees! The beans are always so easy to work with. They make for easy brewing and very flavorful cups. I'm a huge fan and loyal customer for the future!
I have liked every coffee that I've had from Ruby, and I like how Ruby sources from farms that focus on sustainability.
I love the variety of flavors that are presented from different areas of the world.
I have, for years, received a rotating cast of delicious coffees each month. Each coffee has its own color and profile. I embrace the delicious variety and couldn’t choose a single favorite.
The roast style offers great blends that appeal to all, but also offers exotic single-origin beans directly from specific farms.
Thank you for always providing fantastic coffee. It is so satisfying knowing that each morning I can enjoy a refreshing cup of coffee made by good people who know good people.
