From our friends at La Montaña Tarrazu Micromill in Santa Maria Dota, this Costa Rican coffee embodies the care and attention to detail that brings out the best in the coffees from the Valley of "Los Santos" region. This agricultural zone has perfected for decades the art of growing and producing a coffee that is considered one of the best int he world.
Costa Rica is a country of more than 50,000 coffee farmers, with 90 percent of them having small farms of less than five hectares. Costa Rica sends more than 60 percent of its coffee to specialty coffee roasters around the world. Costa Rica is celebrating 200 years of coffee production and, at the same time, experiencing a little revolution in production and quality that has excited the palates of coffee buyers and consumers alike. This revolution is taking place in the form of micro-lots of coffee, sometimes 50–100 bags, which have been meticulously tended, picked and processed by farmers with small plots of land.
Tangerine peel fragrance with a hint of cinnamon, medium body with a refreshing finish.

Leonela and Alberto own a single estate nanolot from Northern Tolima. For almost 30 years, this couple of caficultores have produced the best coffee in Agua de Dios township. Knowing that the key for quality lies within special care to each step of the process, they start from germinating new seedlings of selected trees in their own crops. And, of course, they follow the same precise protocols of processing. Going beyond their traditional craft, for 2017 harvest Doña Leonela and Don Alberto decided to selectively pick their varietals, adjust their processing and created this particular nanolot.
