In addition, there are other fruits grown on the farm including oranges, bananas and
One characteristic that we love about the farm is the different views on the farm. There are
views of the volcan Baru, pacific islands, mountain ranges and many other views that change
from sunrise to sunset. To us this is what makes the farm more than a place of cultivation but
a small paradise.
Where are We Going
We believe that for the future we need to specialize in specialty coffee varieites, precision
farming techniques, touristic adventures, and other added-value initiatives. This means that
we are in a time of investment and change to achieve these goals. We firmly believe that the
sustainability of Damarli Estate relies on innovation and intentional planning.
