There is nowhere like Costa Rica when it comes to coffee processing and micro-mill innovations.
Olman Vargas Chavarría has dedicated the better half of 25 years perfecting a variety of processing techniques at his 22-acre farm in the canton of San Ramon within the province of Alajuela. Olman uses his own micro-mill where cherry selection and drying are meticulously executed.
This natural processed coffee is an example of precisely executed methods of drying coffee inside the cherry, which eliminates the need to wash the coffee and greatly reduces the environmental impact, while at the same time, producing an expressive cup profile.
Full of sweet fruit notes like Peaches, Lychees and watermelons and all brought home on a lush velvety body this is fine example of a fruit forward coffee. And a perfect summer iced pour coffee or toddy cold brew.
