This Costa Rican Microlot from our friends at La Minita is a hidden Gem in our offerings from Costa Rica!

The world-renowned Hacienda La Minita in Costa Rica’s Tarrazu Valley acquired the La Pradera Estate five years ago and set out to renovate the estate’s coffee trees from scratch – replanting in blocks by Arabica varietal. The farm, lying just up the valley from La Minita, had a very innovative mill - both wet and dry - on site and the folks from La Minita have utilized the existing milling infrastructure to prepare the varietal specific lots for this inaugural year of offerings.

Cupping notes:Fruity, juicy, heavy bodied and really sweet!

I’ve had a lot of success with roasting Costa Rican beans so I was really excited to try this one. I roasted this to a dark-leaning medium in my Fresh Roast and it was an office favorite as a single-origin. Bright and upbeat, my colleagues and I found it to be a little more on the floral side without being too forward. On cool down, there’s more of a fruit element; it reminded me of eating stone fruits right before they’ve reached perfect ripeness. The second roast I tried, I did a 3:1 of Tekisic and a Rwanda bean to 2nd crack in the cooling stage and maintained a bright, floral despite the fuller roast. I always enjoy trying out unusual cultivars and this one is probably one of my favorites. I would recommend roasting right before or only a couple seconds into 2nd as the expressiveness kinda of gets lost in the darker roasts, IMHO. This is a fun one to experiment with.

Rosated this about 1.5min passed first crack. It turned out great, very smooth. Been using a French press with 25g and 11oz coffee or a aeropress 25g 5oz water 195deg, let sit 35sec and then add water to taste.
