The Hidden GemBiodiversity in Nuguo is highly valued. There is already a great variety of birds to be found on the finca, but in the coming years Jose and Aileene want to dedicate even more time and effort to conserve this biodiversity, even investing in eco-tourism development.The finca, also called Finca Nuguo, is situated between 1.750 and 1.950 mts in the area of Jurutungo, Renacimiento, in the province of Chiriqui, nestled between a natural rainforest reserve on the one side and the border of Costa Rica on the other side. The location and environment of the finca is a very challenging one, with cold temperatures at night, lots of wind and rainfall. And even so, this very visionary, passionate and engaged person, Jose, managed to produce some incredible cups of coffee. Or, if we quote Jose, it is because of those rough conditions that the coffee production results in low productivity but an intense flavour. He says that the cold wind and rain that come from the Atlantic through the mountains dividing Panama play an important role in the taste of the coffee from Nuguo.
