A sweet and creamy cup from producer partner, Francisco Mena whose coffees are known to be instant classics.
'El Tanque’ is our first lot this year from Producer and Cup of Excellence winner, Francisco Mena of Sumava de Lourdes. Located in the western valley of Costa Rica, Mena’s coffees are known to be instant classics that are expertly harvested, processed and dried on raised beds. This is a red honey process coffee which means there was a substantial amount of mucilage left on the seeds after depulping. A process that subtly tames the coffee’s acidity and results in a sugary-sweet, creamy-bodied cup that is particularly excellent as an espresso.
