Finca V&G (Vargas and Gutierrez) San Juanillo is the brainchild of an agronomist (Tomas Gutierrez) and an industrial engineer (Allan Vargas), who shared a vision for this 4 hectare farm in San Juanillo, Naranjo when they bought it in 2007.
The initial focus has been on experimentation with hybrid varieties that have been developed by CiCafe (coffee research institute of Costa Rica). These hybrids look to take the best qualities from different varieties; improving cup quality, yield, and resistance to disease.
