The ‘Don Alfonso’ series microlot is a limited-release that represents the best of the harvest from Aquiares Estate in Turrialba, Costa Rica. This is our sixth year buying coffee from Aquiares Estate.Our first Costa Rican lot of the year is a special release Esperanza varietal. This honey process micro-lot was produced by leaving approximately 80-90% of the sugary mucilage attached to the seed after pulping. The interplay of sugars, micro-organisms and fermentation on the seed during the drying phase impart this coffee with fresh juiciness, clear florals and elegant citric notes. There is a well-defined structure and clarity to the profile, with notes of hibiscus, orange and persimmon.Recommended for pour-over, Aeropress, stove top and French Press. Pura Vida!
