Located at an elevation of 1900+ meters and nestled deep in the mountains of Volcan, Finca Deborah is shrouded in dense cloud coverage for most of the year. The plantation is a beautiful, natural environment where rare species of plants and animals are abundant and where Geisha grows to its full potential under the protection of the lush rainforest canopy.


Carefully monitoring the harvesting is one of the most critical steps in a long list of quality control requirements. By hand picking only the ripest cherries and processing those cherries that meet our exacting standards, can we ensure that Finca Deborah Geisha is one of the world’s best Geisha coffees.


Finca Deborah’s mission is to cultivate, process, and deliver only the highest quality coffee available anywhere in the world.


Finca Deborah has the distinct privilege of working with some of the most talented and creative names in coffee. Our coffees have made notable progress in both national and world competition, with frequent podium finishes.
In 2016 Deborah washed Geisha was used to win the World Barista Championship in Dublin, Ireland, frequently showcased during prestigious events, and served in some of the world’s most distinguished restaurants by highly acclaimed chefs.


The Nôbe-Buglé people are the primary workforce on the farm and are the backbone of Finca Deborah. We understand that our operation could not exist without their skill and expertise. We strive to ensure that their needs are met with an abundance of care and compassion.


Traditional electric power is not available in the remote location that is home to Finca Deborah. So, we’ve had to improvise. Our beneficio, or processing center, is powered by our own robust solar system, which further preserves the integrity and sustainability of this unique environment. In addition, as a shade grown coffee plantation, Finca Deborah blends seamlessly with the mountain landscape, sustains the natural environment, and maintains a haven for the local bird and wildlife populations.
