Santa Lucia - Villalobos
Origins: Costa Rica - West Valley, Naranjo
Roast Profile: dark roast
Suggested type of infusion: filter & espresso
Coffee family: arabica
Process: red honey
Grains of flavors: grilled, vegetal, black cherry
Taste profile: when filtered, the coffee presents very fruity and sweet flavors which give a pleasant sensation of roundness in the mouth. Its notes of cherries and wild berries harmonize well with its strong presence on the palate, which lets us guess notes of dark chocolate.
In espresso, this coffee has a remarkable intensity of flavours. Its very sweet side is well complemented by a fairly strong bitterness, which leaves little room for acidity. The notes of fruit are very present and this coffee can be appreciated with milk.
This coffee comes from the Santa Lucia farm, located in the West Valley in Costa Rica. Producer Ricardo Pérez, a passionate connoisseur, acquired this farm and completely transformed the facilities, sacrificing profitability in favor of certified all-organic practices. His daughter Mariana will take over the management of the farm, continuing their mission to offer clean coffee in taste and cup, while developing their technological expertise.
We discovered this coffee during our last expedition to Costa Rica. This is a unique microlot available to us through direct purchase from the grower. Although our bags do not bear the official logos, the beans are certified organic on the farm.
Santa Lucia Villalobos is perfect for people looking for a comforting and sweet coffee, but that goes off the beaten path. It is the ideal dessert coffee. From an organic culture and acquired by direct purchase from the producer, this coffee will also charm people concerned about the origin of their coffee.
