Climate and soil:

The well-defined wet and dry seasons of Tres Ríos, produce the perfect soil and climate for growing coffee. Thick deposits of volcanic ash from the Irazú Volcano, provide rich organic matter that gets distribute to the roots of plants, helping them to retain moisture. Tres ríos was one of the cities choosen to plant the first coffee plants in Costa Rica, because experts recommended planting coffee at higher altitudes, protecting them from buffeting of winds with rows of trees.

Together, all these factors make this area ideal for coffee production.
