Luis Anastasio Castro, better known as Tacho, was an early adapter to the micromill model. At this micromill, the Juanachute, the entire process is controlled. From planting the coffee trees to sealing the jute bags of greenbeans, all under the supervision of DonTacho. This lot is White Honey processed, which means that the beans are first washed, then dried on sunbeds in full sun for 14-21 days. The Castro family is involved in the coffee market in many different ways. One of Tacho’s sons is reponsible for the barista education program in the local high school, and competes in Barista Championships. Tacho’s other son works at a coffee exporting company and make relationships in markets.
