Coffee Story: This is the fourth year La Cabra have bought Geisha from the micro mill Granitos de Altura. The mill is owned by Omar Calderon and his family, and lies just outside the town of Santa Maria de Dota, in the Tarrazu region. They have visited Omar several times, and dined with him and his family at their house, located next to the mill, high in the Talamanca Sierra, overlooking the beautiful Los Quetzales National Park. They have several small farms scattered around the mill, effectively creating one larger farm. This Typica comes from cherries grown at Ortiz 2000, named for its high altitude, reaching over 2000 masl. Omar then takes the ripe Typica cherries and processes them at Granitos, using the white honey method. This involves leaving a small amount of flesh on the seed during drying, adding sweetness and fruit tones to the cup, but aiming to maintain a very clean representation of the Typica varietal. The florals shine through, with a very clean and sweet cup, one of the most transparent representations of Typica we have tasted this year.
This coffee will be roasted fresh for you. La Cabra will roast your coffee Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and dispatch Wednesday or Thursday. (Denmark time)
