Costa Rica Chirripo

Sold Out.  This one was a beauty, but don't fret, we have another top shelf Costa Rica available early next week from one of our favorite producers, Beneficio Don Mayo.  Check back soon!


Wonderfully complex in the cup, with a spicy sweet dry fragrance. Notes of cooked fruit, maple, grape-like acidity, and a delicious cocoa finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent prepared for drip and espresso.

Details

Our quest for compelling coffees has brought another fantastic offering to our customers with this Costa Rica lot. This farm is off the beaten path a bit, in a region called La Piedra de Rivas (you are likely familiar with Costa Rican coffees from Tarrazu or the Central Valley). Grown on the 16 hectare Finca Jose by brothers Jonny & Jose, and milled on site using a unique mechanically washed process, this coffee is satisfying from start to finish.

Wonderfully complex in the cup, with a spicy sweet dry fragrance.  Notes of cooked fruit, maple, grape-like acidity, and a delicious cocoa finish that lingers in the mouth.  Excellent prepared for drip and espresso.

    Simple and complex at the same time

    Review by Dan on August 26, 2015

    The holy grail of coffee seems to be coffee that tastes like coffee, but more so. This coffee may be that coffee. It rolls across the tongue with a nice honey-like sweetness coupled with a morning brightness (acidity) that demands the next sip, and the one after that, and so on. Keith recommended this as a coffee that might appeal to me while I wait for his next Sumatra crop to arrive. This was better than a replacement -- it was a door to a place I had never previously visited. Thank you.
