Costa Rica!! 

Costa Rican coffees will always hold a special place in our hearts as they were our introduction to honey-processed coffees years ago. Honeys are always fun because you typically get a little extra body and sweetness compared to a washed coffee, but without the fermenty funk that so often plagues natural process coffees. When you get a good natural though (that isn't funky), that extra sweetness and very obvious fruit-forward profile is truly something special. This coffee is super clean and expressive, with notes of apple kombucha, apple cider, cherry soda, and cascara. Enjoy!

From our importer:

"Dona Francisca and her husband Oscar Chacon of the Cumbres del Poas micro mill are 3rd generation coffee producers. The Cumbres del Poas micro mill is located in the Sabanillia de Alajuela in the Central Valley region of Costa Rica. Both Francisca and Oscar believe in preservation of the environment. They were one of the first pioneers of high-quality honey and natural process coffees in Central America back in 2009 when they started experimenting with special processes. Water use at the mill is minimal, since their coffees do not undergo the washed process. During the harvest of their coffees they will measure the brix content in the coffee cherries to determine the best time to pick their coffees to obtain the utmost sweet and fruit forward profile."
