More about this coffee
Oscar and Olga Mendez joined the Costa Rican micro mill revolution in order to process their own coffee and gain further control over the quality of their production. Avid environmentalists, their vision was to produce coffee in harmony with nature and using environmentally-friendly tactics.
The name “Genesis” derives from the new beginnings the farm represents for the Mendez family, enabling them to own a family-run micro mill and to grow coffee with distinct character. This coffee is best brewed as an espresso yielding a creamy texture with notes of stone fruits and milk chocolate sweetness. With milk you can taste smooth and nutty flavours for a well-balanced and easy-to-drink cup.
We are the home of fresh coffee. When you order online, your coffee is roasted fresh to order, especially for you. Plus, it’s speciality grade and traded ethically through Union Direct Trade.

The borders of the coffee fields are full of flowers, a little side business of Olga. When walking through the Genesis farm, Oscar will stop and explain to you about the benefits of each shade tree, the medicinal herbs that grow on the farm and the cherished Geisha tree. Their daughter, Pilas, is also involved in coffee growing and maintaining their coffee paradise when she’s not working as a teacher.
Oscar and Olga have constructed their own micro mill and are processing their own lots of coffee. The name Genesis derives from the new beginning for the Mendez family: when they moved away from selling their coffee cherries to large multinationals where it disappears within the bulk. They’ve claimed more involvement by processing the cherries themselves and in turn given the coffee its own identity. Oscar and Olga process their lots in various ways: honey, naturals and fully washed.
