Cerro San Luis Micro-mill in Costa Rica's West Valley is no different: The mill and its affiliated farms are run by a pair of second-generation coffee-producing sisters and their husbands. The family's farms are adjacent to one another, and the micro-mill they share is located at the family home not far away.
There are more than 10 different types of coffees grown on the various farms run by the sisters and their husbands, including Caturra, Bourbon and Orange Bourbon, SL-28, Cataui and Yellow Catuai, and Villa Sarchi. After the coffee cherry is harvested, it's brought to the mill for processing: Coffees here might be finished as Washed, Honey, or Natural lots.
