El Cipres is located in the region of Tarrazú and belongs to Jesus Mora Camacho and Adelina Camacho Portugues. The farm has belonged to the Camacho Portugues family since 1939.  

When the family moved into the region, they were one of the first to establish themselves in Llano Bonito de Leon Cortes, and the family dedicated their lives to the agricultural practices of coffee and livestock. The legacy of their family has continued to be carried through the generations and their goal now is to perpetuate the practices of high-end specialty coffee.

El Cipres has a diverse range of plant and crop life, with shade provided by Orange, Avocado, Banana, Plantain, Poro, Cedar and Indian Cane, as well as fruit trees that provide food and shelter to native birds of the region. El Cipres is constantly implementing better practices such as regulated shade and controlling weeds and applications of fertilizers in a sustainable manner.

The family Camacho process their coffee at Beneficio AFAORCA (The Association of Organic Families of the Caraigres Hills), an organisation based in the Tarrazú Valley. AFAORCA was founded in 1996 with the aim of improving the production, processing, marketing and legislation of organic coffee. Their overarching goal is to improve the livelihoods of the families involved. They offer employment to producers in the off-season at their local café in Tarbaca, and provide organic education for the general public.
