"The efforts of an entrepreneurial spirit"
The first thing you'd notice at Micro Beneficio San Juan are the red-cherried coffee bushes, shaded by swaying orange and banana trees. But it's not the scenery that makes this farm so special: it's what comes after the harvest.
Don Hans and his team of coffee farmers, have dedicated their lives to producing high quality fine coffees. An entrepreneur himself, Don Hans has experimented with growing different varietals and species of coffee plants, as well as tried different techniques of processing coffees. Our Merito Micro Beneficio San Juan is a "black honey processed" coffee, meaning during processing, the mucilage, a honey-like substance that encases the bean, was left on the bean to dry for 30 days, resulting in a uniquely flavorful coffee. In 2014, Don Hans submitted a sampling of this Micro Mill coffee lot for the Costa Rican Cup of Excellence, a prestigious award given to fine quality coffees. This lot from Micro Beneficio San Juan was a Top 15 local market finalist that we were able to purchase and roast exclusively for our customers.
Chosen for its floral aromas and dulcet flavors, this unique coffee is unlike any we have ever offered. Don't miss your chance to try one of the best coffees in Costa Rica.
