The plots are located at an altitude of 37 meters above sea level, on flat terrain with a humid climate (annual precipitation can reach up to 3,874 mm). The region is rich in powerful and meandering rivers, surrounded by primary forests, and teeming with abundant wildlife and flora.

Costa Rican pepper is known for its high concentration of piperine. Typically, the concentration in pepper from other regions of the world is around 4%. Here, this concentration can reach up to 7%, making Costa Rican pepper quite unique and interesting. Our producer also grows lemons, and these two crops coexist harmoniously.
