About this coffee

The ripe coffee cherries come from the La Pastora area, which is about an hour away from the Don Eli farm. This is one of the highest farms in Costa Rica with fantastic soils and a stable climate. The coffee cherries are delivered to the mill in the evening, where they rest overnight before being processed the next morning. Jacob, Carlos' son, processes all the coffees here with great passion. For this lot, Jacob opted for the "double washed" processing method, which involves a considerable amount of extra work. The coffee cherries were pressed through a Penagos eco-pulper to remove the outer skin of the coffee cherries. The coffee was then covered and left to ferment dry for 24 hours. Afterwards, the coffee was washed several times with fresh, cold water to remove all pulp residues. After washing, the coffee was soaked overnight in fresh, cold water for 12 hours. Finally, the coffee beans were spread out on raised drying beds and dried in the shade for 5 days. After the initial shade drying, the coffee was placed on African raised beds to dry in the sun. This multi-stage process is widely used in countries such as Kenya and Rwanda, but is not common in Costa Rica. The result is a wonderfully clear and sweet washed coffee with a distinctly different taste to most washed coffees from Costa Rica.

The Farm

We have been thrilled with the coffees from the small Don Eli farm in Costa Rica since the beginning of 2018 and have been buying fresh harvests regularly ever since. On our origin trips through Panama & Costa Rica, we were able to visit the farm owner Carlos Montero and his family in the Tarrazú region several times and have only fallen in love with his coffee even more since then. Carlos' incredible passion, professionalism and dedication to coffee can be felt everywhere and no step is left to chance.
This lot comes from the El Anfiteatro plantation in La Pastora, undoubtedly Carlos' most desired lots of each year. This plantation is located on the top of a famous mountain in Tarrazu called "La Pastora" and offers extreme altitudes of at least 1900 meters. The microclimate is ideal for coffee cultivation: the soil is very fertile, the air is fresh and cool, on the one hand it rains a lot, on the other hand the crescent-shaped plot receives many hours of sunshine per day. The altitude allows for optimal growth and slow ripening of the coffee cherries, which makes the flavor even more intense. We are convinced that the unique location of the plantation and the great care that Carlos devotes to it mean that this hillside produces some of the best coffees that Costa Rica has to offer, year after year.
