This is a brand new coffee for us from the west valley in Lordes de Naranjo, who are the neighbours of Fince De Licho and Herbazu. Located @1550 - 1600 mask and owned by partnership Oldemar Arrieta Lobo and Marlene Brenes Morera. Names Vista al Valle that translates as View of the valley. Take a look at some of the pictures to understand why.

Its also a brand new micromill in only its second year of production. they both learnt their skill working for other people, but now they have their own mill.

They own three farms, this one surrounding the home where they live, the others being Zapote and Fidel. Fidel winning this years cup of excellence and coming in 1st place.

The varietals from this farm are villa sarchi and is sun dried in their poly tunnel using the red honey process.

In the cup expect a balanced hazelnut and milk chocolate that reminds me of a topic bar. Where this excels in its complex and interesting aftertaste that just carries on with the topic bar long after finishing the drink.
