Don Geovani

Don Geovani Gonzalez is the owner of Barranquilla micro mill in Barranca de San Juanillo. Geovani took over the small farm, 3ha in total from his father in 1980 and has since purchased a further 7ha. He is one of the few producers in Costa Rica who uses traditional fermentation tanks to produce washed coffee. The majority of washed Costa Rican coffee is processed using demucilagers; Geovani chooses to use this method to process his micro lots in order to have greater quality control and produce a distinctive flavor profile. Having been a coffee producer for over 30 years, Geovani has seen many changes within the Costa Rican industry and understands the importance of continuous improvement.

Costa Rican Coffee History

Costa Rica is one of the top producers of coffee. Coffee is Costa Rica’s number three export. Coffee exporting is incredibly important to the country’s economy. Arabica coffee was first introduced to the country directly from Ethiopia in the late 1770’s. The Costa Rican government encouraged farming by offering plots of land to farmers who wanted to grow and harvest the plants. By 1829, coffee production was a larger source of revenue than tobacco, cacao, and sugar cane. Today, many Nicaraguan immigrants are often employed as seasonal workers on plantations to harvest coffee during peak seasons.

Our Don Geovani Lot 8 Microlot has a clean start and full finish, with notes of chocolate and berries.
