The Calderón Martínez family started with their micro-mill in 2013, located in Santa María de Dota-Tarrazú. Everything started with a dream of Mr. Omar Calderón who years ago thought in processing his own coffee and motivated by his wife and four daughters decided to begin with the project that nowadays is called Granitos de Altura del Ortíz Micro-Mill. Mr. Calderón who has experience in the coffee sector for more than 30 years does the maintenance of the coffee plantation. Since he was 18, he has dedicated his life to the coffee plantation, while his daughters work the micro-mill.
Ortiz 1700 Farm is a 15-year-old coffee farm, located at 1750 m.a.s.l. It is planted with Typica and Villalobos, coffee varieties that gave us the 12th position in the actual Cup of Excellence. The experience of Cup of Excellence has been very rewarding and even when in past editions we have not made it to the International Auction, because this has motivated us and provided us with dedication and effort to work even harder improving our coffee and achieving a spot on the a finalists this year.
