We are super excited to bring back Finca San Luis from our good friend Daniela Gutierrez in Tarrazu, Costa Rica. Despite all the challenges with COVID-19, we were able to secure this lot thanks to our relationship with Daniela. And we have to say this years harvest is just amazing! It exceeded all our expectations and we hope you will love it as much as we do!
Finca San Luis and the La Montaña de Tarrazu Micromill is a family business, overseen by two sisters, Daniela and Tatiana Gutierrez, having taken over day-to-day operations from their father, Jorge.
Daniela handles day-to-day operations and is passionate about specialty coffee. She has learned about barista skills as well as roasting, and enjoys drinking the coffees that La Montaña produces. The sisters’ father is still involved in the farm, but the sisters are working in the commercialization of the coffee.
Jorge acquired his first farm 40 years ago and he is still fascinated by coffee production. He has dedicated his whole life to growing coffee and his daughters are interested in following in his footsteps. “Coffee for us is our way of life,” says Daniela. “It is a job that we enjoy and that we are passionate about. Coffee is what we breathe and what we love to do.”
