Los Girasoles, Costa Rica - Clementine, Sponge Toffee, Black Tea
Origin: Santa Maria de Dota, Costa Rica
Process: White honey
Producer: Ricardo Calderon
Micromill: Los Angeles
Los Girasoles comes to us from the award-winning Calderon family who have been working in the Dota Valley in Tarrazu for three generations. We have been working with this family for almost 10 years and their coffees have become a mainstay on our annual single origin lineup.
Over the years, we have seen the quality of their coffees increase, garnering widespread recognition and winning them multiple awards. We have also seen their increasing success as they have expanded to own multiple farms, their own micro mill and even a small roastery in the corner of their warehouse where they have begun roasting and distributing their coffee to local cafés offering the farm to cup experience. As with past crops, expect tonnes of sweetness and clarity but with a bit more added complexity leading to a silky body and balanced notes of clementine, sponge toffee and black tea.
