Costa Rica Alto San Juan
Another stunner from the Dota cooperative in Tarrazú and a roastery favourite to boot. It really sings in the espresso machine delivering jammy sweet fruits, but we can't agree if it's even better as a filter (V60 or Chemex): while still sweet, it becomes gentler, cleaner and more restrained marmalade on toast.
Processing and Varietal
Hand picked in baskets when the cherries reach perfect ripeness.
Pulped then Fully washed. Patio dried and then rested for around 60 days before final milling and defect sorting before export.
Caturra & catuai.
See above, but in summary - clean, full-bodied with sweet orange and a hint of raspberry.
