Granitos de Ortiz is a beautiful micromill in the Santa Maria de Dota hills in Tarrazu. Omar Calderon is the producer and this lot comes from his La Esperanza farm. He, his wife, and his four daughters have been growing coffee and processing it in their own micro mills for the last 20 years.
The 5 farms are situated all over 1800 meters and he is assisted with the work, both in the field and behind the scenes, by his coffee obsessed daughters.
The five farms are ‘2000 Ortíz’ (2000m), the ‘1900 Ortíz’ (1900m), ‘la Granadilla’ (1800m), ‘la Casa’ (1750m) and the ‘Nery’ (1700m). Each of them with a selection of different varietals, from Gesha to Villalobos, to make the most of the unique topography they have called home for several generations.
