Tasting Notes

PASSIONFRUIT/ FLORAL/ CREAMY
Big tropical flavours of passionfruit and guava sit well with florals akin to elderflower and a large double cream-like body, a little bit of summer in these wintery days. This, of course, is from longstanding friends the Calderon family in the Tarrazu region.

One of our favourite families in Costa Rican coffee, these guys are an example of how older and younger generations are working together, expanding and improving on operations and processes. Omar Calderon, his wife Yorleni and their four daughters Johana, Jocksy, Diana and Joyce, run their family mill and each has their own farms. During Anette’s visit, youngest daughter Joyce told her that when she celebrated her quinceañera (15th birthday), she was given the choice of a new car or her own plot of land, and she was never in doubt to choose the land. On that same visit, it was exciting to see they have extended their bodega in order to store more coffee and bought more land to plant with new trees. You can really feel how much love they have for their coffee, and we’re thrilled to be able to share their coffee with you year on year!
