Costa Rica Tarrazú Divino Niño

San Pablo de León Cortés, Tarrazú, Costa Rica

With four generations of farming experience behind him, Mauricio Vindas is off to great start at Divino Niño. Since purchasing the 12-hectare farm in 2009 (he worked as a cook to save up the money), he’s planted more than 5,000 Caturra and Catuai trees. This year, thanks to some meticulous picking and processing, Divino Niño nabbed its first Cup of Excellence award. The name “Divino Niño” is a tribute to Mauricio’s son, whom he believes emerged from a childhood sickness with a bit of divine help. Now in his early teens, Mauricio Jr. is a certified barista by the Specialty Coffee Association of Costa Rica -- and, we’re willing to bet, a ball of energy.
