Costa Rica Beneficio Santa Rosa 1900
Nestled on the slopes of the Talamanca Mountains in Costa Rica’s cherished Tarrazú growing region lies Beneficio Santa Rosa 1900, a micro-mill owned and managed by Efraín and Gelberth Naranjo. The 1900 refers to meters above sea level, and at these elevations, the coffee on the father-son team’s four neighboring farms ripens at an unhurried pace permitting the development of more sugars. After harvesting and pulping, trace amounts of fruit were left clinging to the beans, classifying this lot as a white-honey processed coffee, so named for its sticky, honey-like appearance. Finally, the coffee was placed on raised beds where it was meticulously cared for to promote even drying. High altitude, careful processing, and a host of other factors combined to yield this one of a kind coffee featuring sweet and complex flavors that we are eager to share. This is the first time we are offering a coffee from Beneficio Santa Rosa 1900, but it surely will not be the last!
