Daniela Guitierez is the first Costa Rican coffee producer we've had the pleasure to work with. You might say hers was our Costa Rica gateway coffee that blew the doors open to us getting to partner with many other cool farmers in her area. We took our first trip down to Costa Rica in early 2023 and the day spent with Daniela was one of the highlights of the trip. We met at her meticulous, state of the art mill where they process all of her coffee. Daniela hosted us for an exquisite homemade multi-course lunch before we headed out for a hair-raising off-road excursion for a tour of one of her breathtaking mountainside farms. Most of the coffee that we buy from Costa Rica is honey processed - meaning that though the skin is removed from the cherry, the fruit, or mucilage, is left on the coffee seed while it is dried. This tends to make these coffees slightly funky and more fruit forward in the cup. This year we sourced 2 fully washed coffee from Daniela. The coffee is very clean tasting with nice complexity and a delightfully plesant brown sugar sweetness.
