Huehue is one of the non volcanic coffee producing regions of the country. Due to its topography, there are multiple micro climates which are perfect for coffee production, giving the coffee nice fruit notes. Finca Joya Grande was established in 1976 as a very small coffee plantation operation. Access to the farm at that time was very limited and fertilizers and nurseries had to be transported by horses. Given the farm's topography, coffee is the only agricultural product that can be planted but with the advantage of a superb quality production. All coffee pulp resulting from the wet mill process is utilized as organic fertilizer. The farm works under a strict shade-grown policy and also has forest conservation areas that provide shelter to many native fauna and flora species.
