Johnny Alvarado used to run the Imperio Rojo micro-mill with his brother but built his own small mill this year just down the road. The Chirripó region of Costa Rica has been relatively untapped for coffee production until recently but has some serious potential. Johnny recognizes this and he now has 9 small plantations on the surrounding mountains, with some as high as high as 2000 meters above sea level. He processes his coffee up at 1800m where it’s cooler and there’s less chance of the cherries spoiling. He brings the processed coffee straight down the mountain to be dried at a warmer temperature on raised beds in his front yard. His farms are newly planted so they aren’t producing much coffee yet, but the coffee is already of very high quality! We bought a small lot from El Aguacate, one of his newer farms.
