Background

Another magnificent coffee from the amazing Don Mayo Estate and Mill. The name "Don Mayo" is in memory of Mr. Amado Bonilla Valverde, Father of the present owners and Ismael Solís Castro, Grandfather of the present owners, better known as “Abuelo Mayo” by his relatives. Both of these men were respected as great achievers and enduring examples of the benefits of hard work. They taught their children to see the coffee as their profession since they were pioneers in the coffee activity in Zona de los Santos two generations ago. The property where the mill is located was originally owned by Abuelo Mayo.

Coffee from this mill was a Cup of Excellence winner in 2009.
