La Candelilla is a pioneer when it comes to micromills: It was one of the first micromills established in the year 2000, and has been selling specialty coffee since then. The Geisha has been bought by Starbucks and featured in their Black Apron program in the past.

La Candelilla is a family owned and run micromill in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. Tarrazu is the biggest-producing coffee growing region in Costa Rica, with its coffee culture ingrained to daily lives of its inhabitants. Most of the farms produce Caturra and Catuai, with some Geisha, SL-28, and Typica, and have an area of more than 40 hectares total. Coffee is wet-milled and dry-milled on-site.

Didier, the owner of Finca Palmilera, won second place in the 2013 Cup of Excellence with his Geisha.
