From Foundry Coffee Roasters:

It's back! Definitely up there with our most popular natural processed coffees of the past few years, this one is an absolute belter. Just like before, prepare yourself for HUGE tropical fruit notes. Papaya, mango, apricots - it's a real treat for the taste buds. Despite the fruity explosion, it somehow manages to be well balanced and there is a smooth, almost buttery finish. Stunning espresso and delightful filter - natural coffee really doesn't get much better than this.

San Francisco is the name of one district in the ‘Cordillera Central’ also called ‘La Zona de Los Santos’ but this is also the name of the farm from Edgar Fallas Solis, his wife Ligia and their son Willian. The family owns 10-12 hectares of coffees intercropped with avocados, citrus and banana trees.

Edgar is the second generation working on this 55-year-old farm originally planted with Caturra with now the addition of Catuai and Catimore. They get seedlings from the national research centre.
