Our current specialty offering straight from the coffee roaster!
This is our first coffee sourced from Costa Rica in over 3-years and we're super proud to showcase it for its unique flavour characteristics, story and processing method.
As a coffee roaster, we’ve roasted this bean to bring out the most of its natural flavours. This specialty coffee has been roasted light to suit both filter and espresso style brew methods.
The Campos family has been growing specialty coffee since 2014 from a farm named Finca La Toboba. Their focus on specialty coffee has developed over the years with an investment in equipment and with some real ingenuity in their mechanical processing. Senel Campos retro kitted a depuluper with the motor of a washing machine resulting in a very rewarding 88.75 coffee.
This exclusive lot is 'triple washed'. This means that it undergoes a rigurous processing of washing the coffee three times before it is finally sent to the dry mill where the parchment is removed and the final product is packaged and sent for export.
During the first fermentation, yeast is added to create an enzymatic reaction with the Catuai varietal. This modifies the standard Catuai flavours to create a much more floral and aromatic coffee than the standard representation of the Catuai. This unique combination really highlights some amazing flavours and complexity shown in this coffee.
