About the CSN Mill


Café Selva Norte oversees the entire process of washed parchment coffee and specialty micro-lots, from pre-cleaning to the final stages of optical color sorting, liner and burlap bagging, and loading containers. Operating as a semi-automatic facility, CSN employs cutting-edge processing technology. As the first CIMBRIA-equipped dry mill, CSN brings both social and environmental advantages, notably reducing dust levels within the plant, thereby enhancing air quality for workers.
