Over 250 years ago, a few coffee trees were introduced to the island of Puerto Rico. At the time, coffee was a Caribbean crop in the New World. Yauco Selecto’s unique taste has made this Caribbean island a favorite among true coffee connoisseurs. The limited availability of this coffee makes this offering a rare treasure to those that wish to drink one of the world’s top coffees.

Yauco Selecto AA coffee is prepared exclusively with arabica coffee beans from Hacienda San Pedro and Hacienda Santa Ana in the high mountains of Yauco. With the coffee beans grown at altitudes up to 3200 feet some consider Yauco Puerto Rico’s finest coffee region.

Yauco Selecto AA coffee embodies a coffee that is watched from bean to cup. Yauco Selecto coffee is planted, nurtured, grown, cultivated, processed, and exported, never leaving the hands of the partners involved. This attention results in superior cup of coffee.

The cup qualities of Yauco Selecto AA coffee are because of several factors, among them are:

  • The high mountain grown character of Yauco Selecto AA coffee. They grow their coffee at the highest altitudes available in Puerto Rico. Higher altitudes mean a longer growing process under more temperate temperatures.
  • They use old style arabica coffee bean varieties for their coffee. As in the wine making process, coffee bean varieties have a strong effect on the resulting taste. Their coffee bean varieties produce a lower yield but higher quality coffee beans than the commercial varieties currently in use worldwide. 
  • Over one hundred inches of rain per year make land fertile ground for their coffee. 
  • Yauco Selecto coffee is handpicked and carefully oversaw throughout all stages of processing. The working conditions and health of the farmworkers is important. As U.S. citizens, their employees earn a fair wage and enjoy safe, government-monitored working conditions. Their environmental practices include a strict erosion control program, natural fertilization, and an innovative water recycling system.
