The Solis Blanco brothers are 4th generation farmers in San Marcos, Tarrazu. After their father passed away and left them the farm, they formed Don Oscar, which was named in honour of their father and represented a new direction for their business. The brothers looked at the developments in micro milling happening around them and after two years of planning completed their own mill in 2013. They called it The Coffee Factory and now process around 200 quintales of coffee each year. Their Catuai tree stock is about 9 years old and even with rocky soil conditions they produce a healthy crop thanks to careful nutrient management. This is our first year buying their coffee and we’re looking forward to following their progress in years to come!
