Farmlevel Story

Ricardo Perez and his brothers built the famous Helsar de Zarcero mill to process their own coffees. It quickly became a neighborhood mill as other local small farmers sought Perez’s dedication to quality and transparency. To this day, Helsar’s equipment and facility are known for processing stunning micro-lots from small farmers throughout the West Valley. This rare Villalobos variety is known only to one region in Costa Rica and is cultivated by a dynamic team of third-generation farmers. It went through the white honey process, resulting in a coffee with crisp clarity and bright acidity.
