Costa Rica Beneficio Los Angeles

Profile

For the third year in a row we are offering a coffee from Rircardo Calderon’s coffee mill, Beneficio Los Angeles. Located high on a hill above the town of Santa Maria de Dota, the mill is in the heart of the revered Tarrazu coffee growing region. Ricardo, a second generation coffee farmer who has been involved in the industry for decades, carries on the family tradition by working with his sons Maikol and Diego. In an effort to differentiate his coffee from other coffee produced in the Dota Valley, he broke away from the local cooperative, Coopedota, to establish his own mill.

The Calderon family owns a collection of boutique coffee farms that include Vendaval, where this micro-lot was grown. Some readers may recall that for the last couple of years we featured coffee from the Caldaron family farm La Bisunga. This year we focused instead on the bright-toned coffee grown on a new, very high elevation farm called Vendaval. Over the last few years Ricardo and his brother Omar have invested profits from coffee sales in land to plant new farms, and Vendaval is one shining example. Last year the brothers divided their holdings so they could each have a legacy to pass on to their children. Omar Calderon established his own micro mill literally across the road from Beneficio Los Angeles. Soon we will feature one of Omar’s coffees, grown on his section of La Bisunga farm.
