Costa Rica Los Nacientes

The cup is different from many of our other Costa Rica offerings; lower acidity, more body. It has a creamy, nutty roast taste with slight citric accent that provides a little effervescent quality to the cup. Full City is ideal.

Los Nacientes is a small farm above the Don Mayo mill in Bajo Canet de Tarrazu. Nacientes in this context refers to natural artisanal springs. Hector Bonilla purchased this farm in the past year so this is the first crop processed at his mill. It's in a beautiful location and has healthy Catuai cultivar trees, which is perhaps part of the more nutty cup character this coffee gives. The farm is at 1630 meters and the close proximity to the mill means that it's just a short trip to deliver the freshly picked coffee cherry to the mill each afternoon for processing.
The dry fragrance has a toasted granola scent, and nutty sweetness; hazelnut and dry roasted peanut. The wet aroma has honey and nuts as well, wildflowers, and dark muscavado (raw sugar) at Full City roast. The cup is different from many of our other Costa Rica offerings; lower acidity, more body. It has a creamy, nutty roast taste with slight citric accent that provides a little effervescent quality to the cup. There is a hint of quince, especially at a lighter City roast, but this cup seems most suited to Full City level, where the brightness is more muted and a latent plum fruit note emerges behind the roasted almond taste. There is also a hint of clove spice in the background.
