Costa Rica Herbazu SL28

Profile

This is the third year in a row we are offering a very special SL28 variety coffee from the Barrantes family. This time the coffee was grown on Leoncio farm and processed at the Herbazu mill located in Costa Rica’s West Valley growing region. The majority of the farm is planted with Villa Sarchi variety coffee but, plots of other cultivars are grown as well, including a small quantity of SL28.

SL28 is a Bourbon derived variety of Coffea arabica that emerged in the 1930s through the work of botanists at the well-respected agricultural research institute, Scott Laboratories. Although the name is rather unromantic, SL28 is beloved by coffee professionals around the world. Widely planted in Kenya, SL28 often credited with providing the unique combination of sweetness, refined acidity and concentrated fruit complexity that is found in the best coffees from this origin.

How does SL28 naturalize when it is planted in other terroirs? This is the question the Barrantes family endeavored to answer by planting test plots of this unique variety in Costa Rica.

Cupping Notes

Bright and penetrating acidity balanced by flavors of sweet tropical fruit and a creamy quality.


Special Roast Days
