From Hundred House Coffee:

La Candelilla was the first independent mill created in Costa Rica in the 2000’s. They used to deliver their cherries to the huge neighbour Coope Tarrazu mill but decided in 1998 to add value to their product taking control of the process.

The farms and mill are run by siblings covering 70ha of planted coffee in total.

The pulp from wet mill is piled in one parcel before being used as organic fertilizer. 9 to 10 pickers help the family during the season to harvest Caturra, Red and Yellow Catuai, Typica, Geisha and SL28

The new, fourth generation is already working along with their parents, innovating and growing the business. It has been informally agreed that one son or daughter per household will take over the farm when the parents retire. It also seems that more young people are coming back to the region after finishing their studies in the capital which is a great asset for the coffee industry.

Flavour notes: A unique micro-lot with the coffee grown and processed on site of the farm - unusual for ethiopia. This coffee is very clean, bright tropical fruit acidity turns into floral tones and a buttery fudge sweetness

Flavour notes: Originally a peachy, brown sugar-like coffee, los ceilitos has matured into something altogether different. Expect notes of heady vanilla, sticky-sweet dried fruits and of course, big boozy notes
