Coffee / Costa Rica / Costa Rica Sao Francisco

Costa Rica Sao Francisco


Lemony acidity with hints of green apple bite making this coffee sharp and fresh, but balanced by a sugar cane sweetness.

This coffee comes from a Micro Mill called Sao Fransisco which is owned and managed by Roberto Calo.

The mill and growing area total just 10 acres and is located in San Rafael de Heredia in the Central Tarrazu Valley growing area. This area is set in the highest most remote sub region of the Tarrazu growing region and surrounded by mountains that form part of the Talamanca Sierra in southern Costa Rica. In general, the coffee from this mill is characterized by its bright with a very clean cup.

Its geography is so well suited to growing coffee having growing slopes at high altitude that face the early morning sun with cloud protecting the coffee trees in the afternoon.  The unique red soil found in the valley is of volcanic in origin which is very high in nutrients and the area has an average relative humidity of 84%

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness.
