Tasting Notes

Grapefruit | Lime | Brown Sugar

This estate was established in 1995 by a Swiss immigrant who started with about 100 hectares of fresh plantings; now production has expanded to 160 hectares. The coffee is sorted as peaberry, which is done with a visual sorting machine: the machine pulls on beans from a particular day of harvest that are peaberry-shaped (instead of the usual half-sphere, it’s more of a football-shaped bean). It yields a super interesting cup with a beautiful brightness rounded out by a touch of sweet brown sugar.
