A returning favourite to the single origin menu comes from the beautiful region of Tarrazu in Costa Rica. Carrizal is one of the Gamboa family’s four Tarrazu farms in the micro region of Leon Cortes and this lot comes to us from the highest part of that farm, Carrizal Arriba. Producer Emilio and his Father Tuto Gamboa are extremely passionate about providing high quality coffee and stability through long-term relationships and decided to build and open a micro mill, Montes de Oro in 2006 to process their own coffee and oversee all the operations.
