This coffee grows in a rainforest reserve, just a couple miles from Costa Rica, and we got to visit the farm this year and hang out and drink coffee with them. It has a high altitude and a surreal beauty as it overlooks the country. Because of its location, forest rangers guard the land from poachers and oversee the organic coffee farming to ensure no harm is done to the ecostructure. Orchids naturally grow in the wild, rainbows are always present, everything is a lush green, and it has a jungle-like feel to it. Birdwatchers, hikers, anthropologists, photographers, etc all enjoy the beauty of the area. The coffee pickers make $100 US a day, which is much higher than most coffee pickers make, and the farm is dedicated to not using child labor.
Of course all of the coffee grown on this mountain is fantastic. Think of it as a Costa Rica, it has a moderate acidity, citrus undertone, and pleasant coffee taste. But it has an extra layer of sweetness and creaminess. Floral, Caramel, slight chocolate, slight mango, very sweet. Very clean finish, and very enjoyable to drink. Flashes of other flavors appear and disappear as the coffee changes temperature while you're sipping at your mug. Close your eyes and you can smell the orchids and see the rainbows.
