Whole beans roasted for espresso and filter
Like many Costa Rican beans, this coffee is rich, smooth, and carries a bright acidity. This lot was produced at a family run micro-mill, “Don Oscar”, in the Tarrazu valley. This area is part of the Talamanca Sierra highlands, with peaks reaching as high as 3000 meters, La Vuelta plotted right around 1800 meters above sea level. It’s an ideal micro-region and climate for growing coffee with rich volcanic soil, great altitude, and is shaded from the hot afternoon suns by mountain peaks. The farm is run by brothers Horacio and Alejandro Solis, and the name “Don Oscar” is in honor of their late father, Oscar Solis, who began farming on this land. Their farm is broken into 40 different lots and is planted in a mix of Red Catuai and Caturra. They produce mechanically washed coffee, which is fairly standard in Costa Rica.
