Vara Blanca is a first generation micro mill run by brothers Mario, Misael, and Pablo Marin. Like many other young farmers in Costa Rica, when these brothers began to experiment with their coffees and try new processes, they were no longer allowed to be part of their local co-op. So with the support of their father, they've started their own artisanal project. We are so proud to showcase these incredibly innovative coffees through direct trade partnership with Vara Blanca.
