This lot comes to us thanks to smallholder producers in the region who cultivate and mill their own coffee. The coffees in this lot were dried as washed coffees mostly by sun drying, but some required mechanical dryers due to weather conditions. After processing, the smallholder lots are then cupped and lots are mixed to match quality and cup profile.
This Tarrazu regional lot is a great example of Costa Rican washed coffee. We get a pop of citrus that reminds us of Graprefruit, dense sweetness of Raisin and Sugarcane, and a delicate body.
