1kg of 100% Arabica Costa Rica coffee from the highly regarded Finca Candelaria Estate - a strictly hard bean (SHB) medium-dark roast whole beans - honeyed processed with a classic flavour and intense fruity finish.
Costa Rica’s volcanic soils, mountainous terrain and plentiful rainfall provide ideal conditions for the cultivation of high-quality coffee beans.
Finca Candelaria Estate prepares an outstanding quality coffee.
Why we like Estate coffees is because they are delivered unblended - so the pure character of the coffee is prepared and not diluted at processing co-ops by mixing with lower grade beans.
Acidity: Bright acidity
Aroma: Apple, pear and apricot notes
Comparing Costa Rican coffees when you have so many of them can be tough. It's like choosing a favorite child. Each of our CR's have rock-star abilities and will please and delight you with what they can do in the cup.
This is a delicate coffee best enjoyed as a Single Origin - I had thoughts of using this in our leading blends, but it would be such a shame to hide the lovely fruit notes that appear in the cup as it cools, becoming more intensely sweet and aromatic.
