A beautifully balanced coffee with white grapes, dates, cane sugar and a lingering sweetness.

Juani Cordero built his own micromill in 2008 to process his own coffee. He started with a small amount of 85 quintals (qq). This season he is harvesting three times greater volumes. His farm is located at 1850 mASL, and his varieties are Red Catuai, Yellow Catuai and Caturra. He processes almost his complete harvest at his micromill, except for the very first early season pick which is of variable quality. He doesn’t want to compromise overall high quality that he produces, so he sells this early season coffee into the local market. He estimates that next years’ harvest, 2015/16 will produce double the volumes.

Extensive pruning and experienced farm management promotes new tissue growth (shiny green leaves) on the 16,000 coffee trees, this will double the harvest size for the following year season. The farm is managed without herbicides, is fully shade-grown and on-time fertilization. One could call it a semi-organic management and low level weeds retained give the farm a comforting rustic feel, compared to some farms which look like immaculate show gardens. Even though the farms’ neighbours are affected by leaf rust disease, this is not a problem at the farm because of excellent farm management skills. Juani Cordero regularly replants his farm with new trees so now his oldest trees are 20 years old, with others at 15, 5 and 2 years old. The complete farm covers an area of 12 manzanas the unit of measurement used in Costa Rica, which is equivalent to 8.4 hectares. He manages the farm with his son Gravin and one other full-time worker. However, during the harvest they employ 20-25 pickers who are mostly from the local village, San Pablo, and also some workers from Panama.
