Colombia and Caturra // Sugar Cane Process
Notes of Cocoa, Toffee and Clementine
We Picked Because: Don Carlos and wife Dona Diana work five small farms and the La Perla Del Cafe Micromill. Every picking season, the same group of indigenous Panama pickers, family to the Barrantes', focus on coffee cherries the color of sangre de toro, or "bull's blood". The coffee cherries, instead of going through Costa Rica's unique centralized coffee milling economy, go through Don Carlos' sparkling clean La Perla Del Cafe Micromill.
Costa Rica is famous for their top notch Honey Processes. Several growers in other countries have tried to imitate the quality but haven't achieved the consistency alongside the quality. Key to this process how the coffee farms works in Costa Rica: growers bring their unprocessed coffee cherries to central processing mills that have the scale and operations to ensure consistent cup quality.
