Micro-milled Costa so sweet and floral
Eco-friendly microlot roasted to a light profile for pour overs.
A leader in the micro-mill revolution, Costa Rica as transformed its production over the past decade, shifting from co-ops and large private mills to smallholder-owned micro-mills. This vertical integration has enabled small producers to add value through improved quality and individualization, while also reaching new markets. We are excited to work with a brand-new micro-mill, Ceres.
Ceres, located in the Los Santos region, is made up of a mother-daughter team. The family has a long history of coffee production, but only delved into specialty two years ago. They are particularly excited about heightened quality, traceability, and the environmental impact of their coffee. This lot comes from a 1 hectare plot of land they named Nubes, for the clouds that often shroud the high altitude coffee farm.
Due to the small size of this lot, it received a lot of focused attention from the producers during growing, harvesting, and processing. The resulting coffee is sweet and complex. We suggest paper filtered, by-the-cup pour over methods to get the most articulate brews. Get dialed-in to floral, dried apricot, cocoa nib, and butterscotch with a 1:16.5 brew ratio, filtered water at 209-210℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.
