Named after the Limoncillo (a small type of lemon) that was already growing on the farm when it was purchased. It was purchased in 1930 after one of our grandfathers made the transition from attending a military academy to civilian life. Limoncillo is the 2nd oldest coffee farm in the Fincas Mierisch group (Los Placeres is 1st). Typica was the sole varietal grown on the farm up until the mid-1990s, but due to climate change, unstable market pricing, and vulnerability to coffee leaf rust we decided to diversify our varietals and also focus extensively on quality over quantity.
