Costa Rica Caturra de Zarcero

This wonderful Single Origin Costa Rica is just roasted and bagged, and available whole bean at the shop right now!

This is a single micro-lot from a one producer, processed at the Helsar de Zarcero coffee wet mill. This is a Caturra varietal coffee, and processed using the Penagos ecological machine wash process (rather than traditional wet-process fermentation method). The cup results are so close to the classic, clean, bright flavor of high grown Costa Rica that we think the ecologically sound new process method also results in flavors similar or better than the old style wet-process method.

In the cup it’s caramel-honey sweetness with a snappy citrus acidity and hints of melon. Amazing clarity!
