Costa Rica, La Candelilla
La Candelilla Estate ist in der wohl bekanntesten Anbauregion Tarrazu gelegen.
La Candelilla is a pioneer when it comes to micromills: It was one of the first micromills established by the Sanchez family in the year 2000, and has been selling specialty coffee since then.
La Candelilla is a family owned and run micromill in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. Tarrazu is the biggest-producing coffee growing region in Costa Rica, with its coffee culture ingrained to daily lives of its inhabitants. Most of the farms produce Caturra and Catuai, with some Gesha, SL-28, and Typica, and have an area of more than 40 hectares total. Coffee is wet-milled and dry-milled on-site.
Coffee has been cultivated in Costa Rica since 1779. Currently, the regions producing the best quality are Tarrazu, West Valley, and Central Valley. Coffee production has been threatened the past decade due to a real-estate boom converting coffee-lands into prime development properties. San Jose, the capital, is right in the heart of Central Valley where you will find private houses next to coffee farms. The value of these farms have now skyrocketed.
