Sumava de Lourdes – 'Llano Bonito' Micro lot – Costa Rica

We are lucky this year to have two separate lots from Francisco Mena, the king of specialty coffee in Costa Rica. His coffee is in high demand because of his skill at all levels of cultivation, harvesting and processing, taking the top honours at the Cup of Excellence in 2016.

This lot is deeply sweet with a lot of bottom notes; the black honey process, which leaves most of the mucilage and fruit on the seed, tames the acidity while boosting sweetness, making this coffee ideal for espresso preparations.
