A Great All Around Choice!

This Costa Rican is a good quality pick. The flavors are not to light or to bold. It’s a great stand alone coffee and I crave it. I go City+, keeps it smooth from start to finish.

Pretty nice Costa Rica

I've been buying coffee from Pastora for several years, and it's consistently high-quality and nicely prepped. This caturra/catuai lot is no exception. The beans are uniform and dense, so it handles a range of roast levels well. I concur with the recommended roast range C+-FC..However, at C+, the hot coffee has a few acidic faults, but if you let it cool a little, everything smooths out and is quite tasty. FC roast is pretty even while hot, but origin flavors are less noticeable. I would not roast darker than FC or you will lose all the tasty origin notes, primarily sugars, nuts and a little floral. We drink it drip and pourover.

Great beans

Bodhi Leaf is my go to for quality beans!

Costa Rican fan

Rich, smooth and roasts so consistent. Works equally well in my French press and super automatic espresso machine.

If you like a light roast - you've found it.

The first thing I noticed, was how small the bean was. Not as small as a peaberry but small, no-the-less. The second thing I noticed was this bean is hard, VERY HARD to push it to second crack, can't really say I ever got there and I tried to get there (I like my coffee and my beans very dark), Everyone that I gave some to, were excited about the flavor. Won't buy it again as I like my coffee dark - but if you like light roasts, this one is for you.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
