Honey processed Costa Rican coffees are famous for their intense fruit and floral aromas. This high-grown selection, when dried in it's honey-like cherry fruit, comes to life with a fresh decadent sweetness
Story of the Bean:
The Arias farm sits on ancient volcanic soil in the high planes of Llano Bonito. This fertile landscape and the masterful technique of Danilo Salazar Arias has yielded a phenomenal example of rich and full bodied Costa Rican coffee.
Mr. Arias was raised on a coffee farm in the West Valley. After 50 years of cultivating coffee, he retains a passionate approach to producing high quality cherry. His attention to detail allows him to evenly dry this selection in a thin layer of fruit which gives it an exceptionally clean and refined flavor. From a pastoral Costa Rican valley and through generations of experience, San Ramon delivers the delicate flavors of fruit blossom in a refreshingly sweet brew.
We Love this coffee! Very smooth, low acid, lovely complex aroma & the taste of light fruit. Definitely a keeper!
One of the best
This is one of the finest coffees I've ever tasted, easily worth the asking price. It's rare to see this level of nuance and complexity in a Central American coffee short of a gesha; this one is exceptional.
I may be partial - i love honey processed coffee and this a a perfect offering ...
