The ‘Pastores’ mill was originally built as a flour mill in the 1800s. The mill bought wheat from producers, processed and sold it as flour. The same method is used nowadays with coffee. After more than 200 years of near constant renovation and adaptation, Pastores is adding yet another chapter to its book: a brand new wet mill. The wet mill allows Pastores to be more efficient in separating the best quality cherries after harvest. Additionally, Pastores uses roughly 80% less water in processing. But it doesn't stop there: Pastores is now using its best cherries for natural processed coffees.
