Description

The Zamora family has been growing coffee at the Cafatalera Zamorana estate for over 100 years and four generations. Jorge Zamora is now in charge of the family business, which he runs with the help of his five sons.

The estate is made up of some ten farms dotted around the foot of Costa Rica’s central volcanic mountain range. The fertile, volcanic soils and mild mountain climate provide ideal conditions for the production of specialty coffee. Two varietals are grown on the estate; Caturra and Catuaí. These cherries are hand-picked only when completely ripe.

Expect a super clean cup; floral and gentle, with an amazing black tea finish. A great example of a washed Costa Rican – delicious.
