|Varietal - Screen size/Grade||Caturra/Catuai|
Locatedin ‘Mercedes Sur’, Turrubares / Puriscal (southwest of San José),this micro mill processing plant (‘Beneficio’) was designed,built and initiated operations in 2014 ( Zona Central, Costa Rica)
Thiswas done at the initiative of the Trejos and Di Tolla families whodecided to invest in this family project. The Trejos’s son,Michael, is married to the Di Tolla’s daughter, Nicole, and theyare currently responsible for the management and administration ofthe farm and the micro mill operation. Their first child, Gabriel,was born in 2013 and the ‘Beneficio’ is named in his honor.
Thehistory of our coffee in the ‘MercedesSur’ region begins with the Trejos family, who are originally fromthis area and who have been cultivating different small coffee plotsfor more than 10 years. This led to substantial improvements in bothquality and yields each year. The area has seen coffee cropsdeveloped at altitudes between 1.350 and 1.600 meters above sea leveland the coffee grown there enjoys a favorable climate for productionof the highest quality.
Thecombination of sunny days, mixed with cloudiness and intermittentrains, complemented by relatively cold nights due to a prevailingbreeze from the Pacific Ocean, results in an optimal plant growth andthe development of a coffee bean with a very special profile, richfruity fragrances and sweet caramel aromas, during the roastingprocess.
Thesize of the farm is around 11 Hectares, planted with varietiesCaturra (80%) and Catuai (20%). Coffee plant flowering is betweenMarch and May. The production of this micro mill is a mix of washed,honey, semi-honey and natural coffee grains.
Unquestionably,it is a ‘high quality’ coffee that delivers an excellent ‘Cup’with special characteristics.
