This coffee is from a brand new farm that first planted in 2012, so this is the very first tiny outturn just 20 bags. We bought just one of them, this is the very embodiment of a nano lot.

This coffee comes from the Central valley region of Costa Rica in the micro region of Mora, San Jose. The mill is called Web Seed after the owner Webster Seed. The farm it comes from is Finca Salitra and is at an altitude of around 1500-16000 masl.

This is naturally processed which is not rare, but is unusual in Costa rica, what is rare is the varietal. The legendary geisha

In the cup expect a big cup of big base notes of liquorice, and gentle aniseed, but as it cools the floral jasmine and citrus notes mix in what's unexpected but delicious.
