Another killer Costa Rica, you say? Absolutely. This honey process Catuaí from Mauricio Jiminez is as sweet as they come, which seems to be the overall trend for all of our lots from Costa Rica this year. El Delfin is a smaller, newer project from Mauricio who named the plot of land after his uncle. We will have another honey process lot from our pal this year from his larger farm, San Martin. The Catuaí shrubs that grow here are close to 2000 meters above sea level, and the resulting slow cherry maturation means denser beans and sweeter, more complex flavors. While the dominant flavors here are exactly what we love about Costa Rica—baked apple sweetness and rich brown sugar—there is also a surprising florality to this coffee that can't be overlooked.
