Welcome to the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve
This lush, dynamic park contains many micro-ecosystems within it, from tropical rainforests, to high, misty cloud forests, to lowland wetlands. The core of the reserve, called the nucleus, is restricted to conservation and scientific activity. The buffer zone surrounding the nucleus is a working landscape, and here sustainable development is allowed.
The farmers of CESMACH grow coffee in this buffer zone, using natural techniques that invest in the biosphere reserve, in the health of the soil and their coffee trees, and - as a direct result - in the quality of the coffee beans.
