Costa Rica El Espino

Profile

Once again we are offering a small lot from a coffee mill known as El Espino. Owned and operated by the inimitable Gillio Ferraro, the farm yields the classic rich and balanced Costa Rica cup profile that is immensely satisfying during cold winter months. Last year we were fortunate enough to visit Gillio at his home where he shared his philosophical outlook on life and farming. His easygoing nature translates seamlessly to his coffee – complex yet effortlessly complete.

This lot was processed on Gillio’s nano-mill using the yellow honey method, which means some of the fruit mucilage is left on the bean before drying. It’s a take on the pulped natural method of processing, and results in more fruit characteristic than a traditional washed coffee. The tern nano-mill is our word-choice, the mill is so small it fits onto a trailer. While visiting last year, the mill had been transported to one of his outlying farms to process coffee fruit on-site.

Cupping Notes

Big deep-toned flavors of chocolate covered raisins and cherries.
