La Aurora coffee mill in Costa Rica


La Aurora

The Solis family micro mill is a success story built on the foundation of the coffee producing culture of the growing region, Tarrazu. Managed by Ivan Solis, the mill specializes in buying freshly harvested coffee cherry from small local farms and turning them into stunning microlots. We love being able to work directly with La Aurora.







Meet The Producers

Ivan Solis is somewhat of a coffee magnate in the prestigious micro-region of Santa Maria de Dota - he seems to know about all the farms and people comprising his beloved, small town. However, Ivan had to struggle and earn his way into the position he is in now from extremely humble beginnings. His hard work ethic, passion, experience, and vision have brought him to create the Sante Fe wet mill with his wife and 3 children.

In addition to owning their own farm, Ivan and his family are post-processing specialists. They purchase coffee cherry from local producers at high prices than the local co-operative will typically pay. They then focus on producing interesting micro lots using honey and natural processing.

Harvesting & Processing

La Aurora is the name of their range of high cup score microlots produced using honey and natural processing techniques.

This year we purchased one of their fantastic Catuai varietal natural processed micro lots harvested from their farm located in the Copey village. This is a high altitude area know for producing incredible coffees.

They also produce a range of fantastic honey and anerobic processed coffees.
