Description: Mariposa is one of the oldest plots on Finca Santa Teresa (FST), and continues to produces some excellent quality Caturra and Catuai coffees. This plot faces the sunrise and is located among the Summer and Estribi Gesha plots at an elevation of 1,475 MASL. This lot was handpicked at peak ripeness and within hours was spread out on the raised drying beds. Cherries are turned every few hours for even drying, which takes 4-6 weeks in the sun, and is finished with a short period in a mechanical dryer.

Mariposa cupped very well on arriving this year, with fun, unique notes for a natural from Central America… or anywhere for that matter. While hot we got the brightness of Grapefruit and delicate fruitiness of Honeydew Melon, and as it cooled this one becomes softer and sweeter with notes of Fresh Plum and Cotton Candy.
