The La Candelilla Estate is owned and operated by seven siblings of the Sanchez family. The Estate was the first micro mill to be established in Costa Rica and the pioneer of the micro mill trend. Before establishing the Estate, each sibling managed their own land and delivered their coffee to a coop-managed mill. During the coffee crisis of 1997, the family made the decision to pool their land and start their own wet mill. After years of planning the Beneficio La Candelilla processed their first harvest of coffee. Under the leadership of General Manager Sr. Ricardo Hernandez, La Candelilla has introduced different processing methods and planted exotic varietals to increase the appeal of their offerings.
