Coffee Info

  • Country: Costa Rica
  • Region: West Valley
  • Elevation: 1,700 meters above sea level
  • Farmers: Salazar Family
  • Varietals: Caturra and Catuai  

 

Mario’s farm is on a north-facing slope in the mountains above the West Valley in Costa Rica. There, his family has been growing varietals Villa Sarchi, Caturra, and Catuai for 40 years. Mario has worked with the Helsar de Zarcero mill to process and dry his cherries for the last 10 years. In 2013, he successfully built his own mill and drying beds, but they were blown down in a windstorm in 2015. Heavy winds are common in the area, and Mario is certainly not the first farmer to experience damage from high winds. He has decided not to rebuild and is again working with Helsar, where his coffees are depulped and fully demucilaged before being dried on a covered patio for 13 days.
