El Maracuya, Costa Rica 300g
The perfect combo coffee, a white honey-processed Typica Mejorado from Tarrazu pretty much checks all the coffee boxes. It’s a perfect hybrid of luxurious and classic vibes at the same time with silky pastry-like sweetness, delicate tea-like florals, juicy summer stone fruits and balanced by a rich chocolatey undertone.
The Calderon family has worked in the Dota Valley in Tarrazu, Costa Rica, for three generations. The family owns fifteen farms and a micro mill where they process coffee from their Los Angeles farms. This particular lot is a Typica Mejorado from the El Maracuya farm, which the family has owned for over 40 years. It was a granadilla farm until five years ago, but they decided to replant this 2 hectares lot exclusively with Typica Mejorado. This is a white honey processed coffee where the cherries were harvested and then de-pulped using a mechanical demucilager until most of the pulp was removed. Then, the parchment is sent to the drying area until the moisture content has reached a stable value between 10-11%. Temperatures can be colder at many micro mills in Tarrazu due to the high elevations so drying can take many days.
