Want a coffee you can take your time over, tweak the recipe to bring out delicate complexities? Proper sorted. Don't just take our word for it, treat yourself to a bag. Then treat your friend to one too. Good coffee is for sharing... Notes of Caramel, Milk Chocolate, Orange, Florals.

Operated by Steven Vargas, Don Sabino Micromill is a recent addition to the Vargas family’s coffee business in the West Valley region of Costa Rica. The family’s history in coffee began with Steven’s great-grandfather, Recadero Vargas, who was one of the pioneers of coffee production in the area of Poas, Alajuela. The legacy continued on to Steven’s grandfather, Don Sabino Vargas Sibaja, and father, Gilberth Vargas, making Steven part of the fourth generation of his family to work in coffee production.

Steven’s farms have a unique landscape which contributes to the final cup characteristics of his coffee. All of his farms, including Orvo where this coffee was cultivated, are under the Poas Volcano and benefit from the nutrient-rich volcanic soil. The topography of the coffee fields doesn’t include steep slopes, which makes organizing the land and separating the coffee varieties easily manageable. The microclimate brings sunny mornings followed by cool and misty afternoons, creating an environment in which coffee thrives.
