Costa Rican Naranjo SHB

Other info SHB


Naranjo was first settled in 1830. The town was first called "Los Naranjos" (the Orange Groves) because of the large number of orange trees found there but was eventually shortened to Naranjo. The town of Naranjo is located at the base of the Espíito Santo Hills at an elevation of 1,036 meters.

I've searched for a while for a good coffee from Naranjo region. People have told me they exist and worth the effort. Most of the examples I've found are too clean or too plain (a typical side effect of Costa Rican I find more and more).

In this one unfortunately no oranges but a great lemon acidity, with that's just perfect for the filter/ french press, with a clarity that's not too much but enough to see the coffee for what it is.
