Have you ever thought about owning your own coffee plantation? Owning a luxury home on a wine vineyard has been a dream of many affluent property seekers and now the trend has been switching to coffee plantations.
Imagine waking up in the morning and steeping your own Costa Rican blend coffee from coffee beans that were handpicked only a few feet from your estates doorstep.
While you’re dreaming, picture yourself holding a steaming cup while standing on your terrace overlooking sweeping valley views as the sun comes up over the Central Valley mountains in Costa Rica, with a fresh mountain breeze cooling your sunbathed face, or being able to send your family and friends gift bags of fresh organic coffee from your own plantation.
For those that can afford it and it’s more affordable than you might think, owning a coffee estate has become a growing trend in Central and South America. This has been a highly prized market for Europeans for decades and now the trend has spread to North Americans looking luxury estates with novelty and income potential.
Coffee from Costa Rica offers a multitude of unique flavors, each special because of a variety of geographic factors. Costa Rica’s unique environment produces one of the best Coffees of the world.
In Costa Rica, harvesting coffee fruit and processing the beans is a labor intensive, meticulous process that takes a lot of time and effort, fortunately the process is inexpensive here. The coffee tradition is an integral part of Costa Rica’s rich cultural heritage.
While there are numerous small farms as well as the larger agro-business plantations, there are limited luxury estates that include coffee growing operations that are on the real estate market here in Costa Rica.
The coffee plantation estates that are on the market are often snapped up quickly especially if they have all the markers and amenities’ that luxury property seekers are looking for.
What are these markers and amenities luxury real estate buyers are looking for in their investment?
Apart the important aspects such as security, political stability, a growing economy, tropical environment, weather and available unique and rich experiences, it is still location, location, location.
