  • Caramel and hazelnut opens up to sweet maple syrup in aroma, notes of brown sugar and honey with a lingering pear and red apple sweetness. A mild malic acidity and a medium body with a milky mouthfeel finish this off.
  • Medium to dark is best for this coffee. On the lighter side of a medium roast we get a really nice mild fruit sweetness. Darker roasts will accentuate the brown sugar and nice body while muting the mild fruity and malic acid.

A group of 20 small producers with pristine farms in the small and charming Community of Santa Cruz have been selected to create the best representation of this special nano-region in Tarrazu. In order to ensure picking only the ripest cherries, the best days of picking on each farm is chosen for cup quality and a higher premium is paid for the better selection. This approach allows more complexity in the cup, while rewarding the farmers that are committed to producing and picking the highest qualities. The cherries that are hand-picked each day are taken to Beneficio Palmichal where the coffee is carefully processed.
