Alejo Castro Kahle is a descendant of coffee pioneers in Costa Rica. He is committed to honouring the legacy of his ancestors through the continued pursuit of their aim — producing excellent coffees and making the family's name known worldwide.
To ensure consistent quality and make way for improvement every year, he is involved in every step of production, from the establishment of the coffee plants, cherry harvest, fermentation and drying, until dry milling and loading the greens into containers for export.
With 200 years of heritage knowledge in coffee, Alejo is vocal about soil health as the cornerstone of cultivating coffee trees that yield cherries with well-developed beans having the potential for complex flavours. He implements only processing innovations that preserve the integrity of variety while highlighting its most desirable attributes and reflecting its provenance.
