La Minita bought this Costa Rican farm (La Pradera) because it has just the absolute ideal altitude and climate (rain shadow) for growing coffee. From the very highest point of the farm, they grew red bourbon varietal trees, processed the coffee by hand, and vacuum packed them on site.
We bought the vacuum packed bags, had them air-lifted out of Costa Rica to keep them off of container ships, and it is delicious.
The coffee is a light roast and has a floral, sweet, mouth-watering red apple taste. Obviously, nothing about this process or this coffee was cheap, and a coffee of this quality and freshness, grown in such perfect conditions is extraordinarily rare or else it's all we would buy! Perhaps the most pure, perfect coffee we've ever tasted, and the perfect example of why Costa Rica and La Minita have such a good reputation in the industry.
