Hector Bonilla, owner of the Las Nuves farm, the person behind well-known and widely recognized Don Mayo micro-mill. For several years, his family has been producing some of the finest coffee coming from Costa Rica. The mill processes coffee cherries from several neighbouring farms in the increasingly infamous Tarrazu region and in 2009 the micro-mill was behind the production of the winning lot. Don Mayo Coffee Mill was established in 1994 and Héctor Bonilla Cruz is the general manager and founder of Don Mayo. Mr. Bonilla was the general manager of Cooperativa de Caficultores de Llano Bonito R.L. from 1992 to 1998, where, amongst other things, he incorporated the "Fair Trade" market and the beginning of direct sales of the cooperative’s coffee to European and North American clients.


Care of the Bonilla plantations are worked in a personal way: the members of the Bonilla Solis family take care of the plantation themselves and supervise each one of the processes. This allows a more meticulous care of the soils, plantations and varieties of coffee. The family oversees every aspect of
plantation management, including pruning, fertilizing and cleaning of the plantations. The family also participates in the milling process, in order to assure a quality product.
