COSTA RICA Tarrazu, San Jose
A honey-processed coffee that comes from Tarrazú, known as Costa Rica’s coffee nursery, from where pioneers started exporting Costa Rican coffee to the world. Produced in Beneficio San Diego, one of the top 3 largest coffee mills in Costa Rica (and the most modern).
In comparison with other processings, water usage is very low. Due to a shorter fermentation period, the coffee acquires an acidity halfway between natural and washed coffees. Farmers produce coffees with some of the unique characteristics of natural processed coffee in less time and with lower risks of unexpected effects, such as overfermentation. In the honey process, the cherry skin is completely removed and only the mucilage is left on the parchment.
This coffee has a lighter, more yellow honey colour, but also is a coffee with an environmental purpose: for every quintal sold, $1 is donated to the Fundación Pro Zoológicos, (Fundazoo).
Based in Costa Rica, Fundazoo is a conservation nonprofit foundation that protects and promotes the natural biodiversity of Costa Rica.
