Costa Rica - Finca Cruz Valverde - Green Bean
Owner Jairo Cruz Valverde has been growing coffee for 40 years in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. The coffees are shade grown at an altitude of between 1,400 and 1,800 meters above sea level. The farm produces 60 bags per year of the Rad Catuai varietal which is sundried in greenhouses, using a "natural drying" process.
When lightly roasted to City level, expect citrus, stone fruit and pear notes. The cup will be bright.
We roast this coffee on the light side of Full City, which accentuates citrus and tropical fruit base notes, with just a hint of grapefruit; very clean tasting.
