Origin Story

Rodolfo Rivera

We are excited to once again be featuring Rodolfo Rivera’s coffee from the Puente Tarrazú micro-mill in Costa Rica. We evaluated this lot while visiting our friends at Exclusive Coffees in San José, Costa Rica earlier this year. Exclusive’s founder, Francisco Mena, is a champion of the micro-mill revolution that has taken place in Costa Rica over the last fifteen years. Francisco works with over one hundred micro-mills scattered throughout Costa Rica’s growing regions, offering training to producers and a platform for their coffees to be shared with coffee roasters throughout the world.

This fully-washed process Gesha variety lot comes from Rodolfo’s small farm, Finca San Martín, in the esteemed Tarrazú growing region. Rodolfo and his family collaborate with families in the community to operate the Puente Tarrazú micro-mill, where coffee from neighboring farms are processed.

Why We Love This Coffee

The Gesha variety was originally collected from coffee forests in Ethiopia in the 1930s. From there, it was sent to the Lyamungu research station in Tanzania before being brought to Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE) in Central America during the 1950s. It was distributed throughout Panama by CATIE in the 1960s after being recognized for tolerance to Roya, or coffee leaf rust. However, the plant was not favored by farmers nor widely planted due to it having brittle branches.

The variety finally came to prominence in 2004 when the Peterson family of Boquete, Panama, rediscovered it on their farm, Hacienda La Esmeralda. After tasting the coffee’s unique flavor profile and quality potential the Petersons entered it into the Best of Panama competition and auction, similar to the Cup of Excellence competition in other countries. It received exceptionally high marks and broke the then-record for green coffee auction prices. This Gesha variety lot from Finca San Martín displays similar floral and fruit forward flavor characteristics to its Panamanian coffee relative, which continues to reset the coffee price ceiling to this day.
