Located in the scenic West Valley region of Costa Rica, the Don Joel farm spans just 12 hectares. Despite its modest size, it yields an impressive 350 fanegas (a Costa Rican term to measure weight of coffee harvested) per harvest, boasting its very own washing mill. Allan Oviedo has been the proud owner of Don Joel for a decade now, and manages farm operations together with his son Ignacio.  Among ten siblings, Allan is one of five involved in the coffee industry. One of his brothers owns the neighboring farm and supplies specialty coffee to the Don Joel wet mill for processing.

Villa Sarchi is one of a handful of varieties grown and processed by Allan. The variety is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety that was discovered about 10 miles from where Allan grows coffee today and is not commonly grown outside of Costa Rica. This Villa Sarchi from Don Joel is a yellow honey processed lot. This means that after the skin and pulp of the coffee cherry are removed by mechanical depulping, some mucilage is left on the bean- only about half is removed. It maintains a rich golden yellow color on the drying table.

In March 2023, Ruby Team Members Katy and Ashley had the pleasure of meeting Allan at Don Joel during their trip to Costa Rica. Here’s what they had to say:

“We met Allan on an unusually rainy day just outside of Grecia, Costa Rica. Getting to the Don Joel farm requires a truck, as the roads are steep and rocky, but the views are incredible. The farm is surrounded by magnificent landscape, sitting just below Volcan Poas and bordering Grecia Forest Reserve. The hills are covered in coffee trees, with many nearby farms owned by Allan’s siblings. 

We fell in love with Allan’s passion for sustainable farming and his coffee expertise. He is particularly proud of his Kenia variety, and his coffees routinely place in the Cup of Excellence, reflecting his hard work. We are so excited to bring these coffees to our menu. While favorites on the cupping table, knowing who cares for them makes them even more special.”
