  • Fragrance of dark chocolate, boysenberry aroma, notes of black cherry, black tea, lemon with a sweet aftertaste like pie-crust and blackberries, heavy bodied.
  • The dark fruit notes come through best at medium roast levels which also accentuates sweetness and body. We recommend keeping this coffee somewhere in between a medium and medium-dark roast to highlight these attributes.

"At Finca El Platanillo, Stuardo has managed to create an environment compliant with certifications and with his own personal quest to find the balance between the ecosystem and a productive coffee plantation as a wholesome unit. Close monitoring of flora and fauna has led to a rich environment where the ecosystem and the plantation planning go hand in hand. Protecting the ecosystem is a principle that has guided all the constant improvement that the farm undertakes each year. Because this principle was always a priority, by the time certification programs such as RFA (Rainforest Alliance), Starbucks’ “Café Practices”, 4C, etc. came into existence; Finca El Platanillo was already in compliance with most of the requirements to obtain these certifications. Keeping Rainforest Alliance from 2005 to this day, and pioneering RFA’s Climate Module as the first farm in the world to implement this once “extra sustainable” now RFA’s standard program.

So satisfying

This has been one of the most consistently flavorful roasts I’ve had. So juicy and satisfying, especially on espresso. An iced Americano is a treat!

Thanks for sharing, Rob!

Pura Fruta

Black cherry! Lots of it. The name says it all. You will know your drinking a natural process for sure with this bean. I went darker than I would of liked but the Cherry/fruit still shined through. Amazing as espresso.
