This coffee is grown in the Naranjo region on the Gaia Estate (named after a Greek god). Gaia Estate is at 5,000 feet above sea level in the middle of the country and was started in 2015 by a husband and wife.
It is not as fruity as an Ethiopia coffee, but it's definitely fruity enough to get your attention. You can mindlessly sip this and fail to notice how intense the flavors are; but we like it best as espresso. Roast it just to the verge of 2nd cracks for an espresso with sweet fruit and chocolate. But roast it about 40 seconds out of 1st cracks for a mildly fruity pleasantly mellow coffee.
Arrived in US in July 2021
