This coffee comes to us from the Don Mayo micro-mill, a mill, processing plant, and group of farms all owned and operated by the Bonilla family in Tarrazu. This particular farm, "El Beneficio", is located in the village San Martin de Leon Cortes up on a high ridge. The growing altitude is about 1650 meters, and El Beneficio is planted in Caturra.
The Bonilla family handle the coffee processing at Don Mayo, and coffee is washed with an ecological water conserving Penagos machine, and then the wet parchment is dried on raised African beds. The pairing of a great high altitude coffee, Caturra cultivar, and excellent processing from the patio to dry mill all show in the resulting ultra-clean cup profile.
