Located in ‘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. This was done at the initiative of the Trejos and Di Tolla families who decided to invest in this family project. The Trejos’ son, Michael, is married to the Di Tolla’s daughter, Nicole, and they are currently responsible for the management and administration of the farm and the micro mill operation. Their first child, Gabriel, was born in 2013 and the ‘Beneficio’ is named in his honor. The area has seen coffee crops developed at altitudes between 1.350 and 1.600 meters above sea level and the coffee grown there enjoys a favorable climate for production of the highest quality. The size of the farm is around 13 Hectares, planted mostly with Caturra & Catuai varieties and some plots with Geisha, SL-28 and Java. Coffee plant flowering is between March and May. The production of this micro mill is a mix of washed, honey, semi- honey and natural coffee grains. The combination of sunny days, mixed with cloudiness & intermittent rains, and complemented by relatively cold nights due to a prevailing breeze from the Pacific Ocean, results in an optimal plant growth and the development of a coffee bean with a very special profile, rich fruity fragrances and sweet caramel aromas, during the roasting process.
