The Place

The Santa Rosa 1900 micro-mill is 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 farm’s proximity to the Pacific Coast brings hot, dry summer days and cool nights. This makes for an ideal climate for growing coffee.

The Process

Coffee at Santa Rosa is washed processed. All of the coffee is dried on raised beds. In 2017 the Naranjos added a dry mill to their operation.

When Efraín first started processing coffee at Santa Rosa, he focused on a very small amount of the Caturra variety in order to achieve consistency in quality. Today, in addition to Caturra, he and Herberth plant and cultivate Villa Sarchi, Catuai, and Bourbon varieties.
