Alajuela, Don Sabino



Esteven Vargas and his father, Hiver Vargas, started the Don Sabino micromill in 2011.  Starting in 2014, the father-son partners decided to switch all of their production over to naturals, because they like the profile.  Perhaps one of the secrets of their production is that they keep things close to home—literally— which helps them control quality. After the coffee is harvested, dried, and milled, it is stored at the family house: “If you’re in the living room and you walk through the rooms, you will see coffee bags stored all over the house.” Luis says. “When you’re in the house, there is the intense aroma of raisin because the coffee is so intense.”
