The Montero family lives in El Llano de La Piedra, between the towns of San Marcos and Santa Maria de Dota in the Tarrazu canton of Costa Rica. The micromill, Microbeneficio Don Eli, is located across the river from their home, fully equipped for processing fully Washed and Honey coffees and covered drying beds for Natural coffees as well.
Carlos has not always had his own mill, however, and the efforts to create coffee processing capabilities on his own land were part of Costa Rica’s “micromill revolution” and the result of the entire family’s hard work and dedication over many years. Carlos was motivated to take the risk of establishing their own micromill to process the coffee they grew. This way, they could regulate their own coffee, focus on innovating processing methods, and ensure quality in each coffee bean. They transitioned to a mindset of quality over quantity.
