Region: Tarrazu/Hacienda La MinitaAltitude: 1300 to 1800 metersVariety: Caturra, Catuai Red, Catuai Yellow, Tipica HibridoScreen: 16Process: WashedHarvest: December - FebruaryTasting Notes: This coffee is our headliner. Grown between 4,000 and 6,000 feet above sea level, on a plantation with a unique micro-climate, whose production has been prized in Europe for more than half a century.There is simply no other coffee prepared so carefully. We begin with about 1,000,000 pounds of green coffee from the heart of the crop. Of this amount, only 289,000 pounds give or take will survive mill classifications to be bagged for shipment. This represents a selective process that reduces our finest raw material by more than 70%.This is an amazing statistic, especially considering the more than 30,000 man-hours of improvement by hand selection during final preparation.We have attempted to produce the perfectly balanced coffee. One that combines all of the ingredients that a classic cup should contain: sweet aroma, full body, brilliant acidity, and delicately clean aftertaste. All in balance and with no impurities to detract from its enjoyment. In a word: elegant.Try Costa Rican La Minita if you like:-fruit tarts-chocolate cake-white chocolate-coffee breads-doughnuts-muffins-shortbread-banana nut or pumpkin bread-eggs and bacon/sausage
