Description

This coffee comes from Finca El Melico, which is a 23-hectare portion of the La Minita Estate located to the east of the main farm. At 1850 meters above sea level, El Melico is the highest-elevation lot on the farm, and has been chosen for planting a number of experimental varieties due to its favorable elevation and climate characteristics.

This year, we produced just 2000 lbs of the sought-after Geisha variety, which was then processed at our mill, Beneficio Rio Tarrazu. This is a washed-process coffee, which underwent full fermentation (no mechanical demucilaging), washing, and sun-drying on raised beds.

Cupping notes: Nice and sweet with milk chocolate, citrus acidity, and good floral/Geisha characteristics. Flavor holds up well over time.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!
