Diego Berrocal operates Plantex farm in the Central Valley region of Costa Rica. His journey as a coffee producer began in the early 2010s when he and his father decided to purchase some hectares of coffee next to the fern farm that he is a part of with his family. Many of the coffee trees on the property had been left to disrepair, but by using their technical know-how from years of fern farming Diego and his father were able to repair the damage. As the climate continues to change and the cultivation of decorative plants becomes more and more difficult, Diego has focused more entirely on specialty coffee on growing their operation, which today covers 40 hectares with coffee production.
