COSTA RICA TARRAZÚ
$12.00 – $22.00
Flavor notes: raspberry, plum, almond, clementine
This coffee was honey-processed, a coffee processing method that started in Costa Rica and has since spread to other countries in Central America. In this process some or all of the mucilage of the coffee cherry (also known as the coffee honey) that coats the parchment is left on during the drying stage, giving the coffee a sweetness that resembles a natural.
The average farm size is three hectares in the Tarrazú region. This unique honey coffee is produced by a community of farmers from this region who deliver to the San Diego wet mill. These farmers are carefully selected during the harvest, based on their farm condition and cherry ripeness.
This coffee was selected for its incredibly exceptional cup profile. Given the uniqueness and complexity of the honey process, no two honey coffees are alike. This craft process starts with the strict selection of perfectly ripe cherries. Once the coffee is depulped, the mucilage is left on, allowing the natural sugars to enhance the coffees sweetness. The coffee is then dried on African beds or patios, allowing it to dry in a slow and even way.
In the cup, enjoy medium body, bright acidity and tasting notes of raspberry, plum, almond, clementine and honey.
