The Place

In 2009 Efraín and Herberth built the Santa Rosa 1900 micro-mill. Their farm and micro-mill are located in the region of San José de León Cortes, Tarrazu. Santa Rosa 1900 is named in honor of Santa Rosa, the local town, and 1900, the elevation of the farm and micro-mill.

The Process

Coffee at Santa Rosa is dried on terraced drying beds and patios scattered throughout the steeply sloping property. In 2017 the Naranjos added a dry mill to their operation, giving them quality oversight through the final stage in preparing the coffee for export. The Naranjo family has started experimenting with different processing methods, all of which involve keeping the day's harvest in cherry overnight before depulping the next morning.
