Finca Pampa & Cielo is located in Ciudad Colón, in the Central Valley, bordering the main points of the capital of Costa Rica.
It is surrounded by mountains, forming a biological corridor. At different times of the year, animals such as monkeys, deers, and raccoons can be observed in the middle of the coffee plants.
Considering the topographic conditions of this farm, when the renovation started in 2018 with new varieties, SMS decided to mechanize it. Nowadays, Pampa y Cielo works as a model farm in Costa Rica of how coffee farming can be mechanized, demonstrating improvements in productivity with new varieties, production, yields, and cost optimization.
