Finca Platanares is located in the Rio Colorado valley and has the particularity of being shaded by banana and plane tree trees. The slow maturation of the coffee cherries needs shading, thus allowing the plants to produce a better bean and to keep the soil moisture high, promoting the biological life of the coffee trees. Banana and plane tree trees are important not only for the diet of farmers in the plantation but also because they are used to feed potassium soil. In this area there are hives that improve the life of the ecosystem. Honey represents an important source of economic support for local populations as well as coffee.
