During 1967, the three Vindas brothers Eduardo, Leonel and Gerardo purchased
the first hectares of land from a cattle farmer and continued producing milk and
cheese for the 1,500 inhabitants of Palmichal. Two years later, Eduardo, Leonel and Gerardo started to grow the first coffee seedlings on the tremendous slopes of the Tacuotarí mountains, where Nobody else even dared to think of growing coffee on these spectacular slopes, but the Vindas’, convinced that the volcanic soil combined with the smooth, pacific-influence and relatively dry climate was ideal for coffee growing, continued to grow Caturra and Catuaí plants protecting the crystalline rivers and preventing the mountain borders from erosion.

Hermanos Vindas are producing one of the finest coffees of Costa Rica on their 60 hectares. From the beginning the Hermanos Vindas have always had an excellent business relationship and friendship with Palmichal Mill, where they have always delivered perfect quality of 100% fully ripe beans to the mill.

After pulping the coffee 80% of the mucilage remained in the bean during drying. The coffee was dried in cement patios for 10 days, afterwards drying was finalized in a drum drier for better uniformity in humidity levels. After the coffee rested in parchment for two months it was dry milled and sorted by weight, density, size and color.
