Getting product details...

From Andy Tucker - Head of Coffee:

"Once again, we bring you our 3rd Costa Rican micro-lot from the esteemed Aguilera Brothers in the West Valley.

Typically, the cup can be floral, with great sweetness and elegant acidity. Also flavours of Raisin, caramel & red grape… There’s just so much going on in this coffee! As with many great Costa Ricans that we’ve had, particularly the delicious El Beneficio back at the beginning of the year, there’s also a delicious and somewhat ‘signature’ cocoa-like character that gives the coffee a superb body & mouthfeel."
"The Aguilera’s are a total of 12 brothers and sisters all of which are involved in coffee from the time of their parents. The brothers work the mill and farms themselves with basically no hired labor other than pickers during the harvest. With the help of the third-generation, they work the mill, work the drying patios, prune the coffee fields, fertilize, etc year-round.

Most of the coffee farmed by this amazing family is of the Villa Sarchi varietal which is a Bourbon mutation (similar to Caturra and Pacas) found originally in Naranjo, West Valley.

We’re continually impressed with the quality of coffees that we’re getting from these guys and through our partners at Cafe Imports, we’re excited to be continuing the relationship."
