"Finca Alfaro" coffee beans are grown on one of the oldest plantations in Costa Rica, in the heart of the Tarrazu region. This Specialty coffee offers notes of cocoa and almonds. Slightly spicy aftertaste and a dense crema. Medium roast designed for a good espresso. 12 x 250g packs.
This coffee comes from the Tarrazu region in the San José province, on the west coast of Costa Rica.
Its geolocation means it benefits from the Pacific Ocean winds which improve the taste quality of coffees.
"Finca Alfaro" is a blend of two botanical varieties: caturra and catuaí. The coffee cherries are harvested manually, carefully selected and treated using water. The treatment plant is an ecological unit. Processed water is recycled, pulping is used as a natural fertilizer.
The coffee trees grow in the shade at 1700 meters altitude. They enjoy good weather conditions, perfect for very high quality coffee cherries.
These conditions allow this coffee to obtain the grade "SHB", ie: "Strictly Hard Bean".
