A COFFEE WE LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY YEAR.
This is our third year offering Costa Rica La Pastora, after our team had the chance to visit the farm and meet the Esquivel family in early 2020.
The Esquivel family has owned and operated Finca La Pastora for over 60 years. They have their own wet mill on the farm, which allows them to do experimental processes and fermentations with coffee. This particular lot is what they call "African Washed" process, which is processed in a style more typical of Kenya, where the cherry undergoes an initial fermentation before being depulped, fermented again, and then sundried on raised beds.
We look forward to this coffee every year-- it is sweet and fruity without being too bright. It also makes a great shot of espresso or a cortado if you prefer to add a bit of steamed milk.
This is a limited release coffee, which means the number of times we roast this coffee each week is also limited. Orders may be delayed 1-2 days to ensure freshness, waiting for the next roast.
