A group of AAA farmers selectively handpicked this coffee in Costa Rica’s Central Highlands. Imagine some of the country’s richest scenery – rainforests, volcanoes, hills and valleys lined with coffee plants and sugar cane – and then, in one of the oldest communities in Costa Rica, Orosi’s mineral hot spring. They bring the thermal waters down to the coffee wet mill and use it once – and only once – to soak the pulped coffee for 12 hours
We separate the single origin coffee in two batches for a split-roast. The first is roasted in medium temperatures to reach a medium-dark colour and develop sweet malty notes. The second is roasted slightly more intensively to reach a darker color and the desired intensity.
The one-of-a-kind process of fermentation in hot-spring waters brings about a remarkably balanced and clean taste in the cup. Master Origin Costa Rica is full-bodied but mellow. A malty sweet cereal note runs through it with crystal clarity.
