Costa Rica El Tigre 1 lb – Whole Bean
Our Costa Rica El Tigre is graded SHB/EP and produced by two wonderful, multi-generation coffee families. The farms are located northeast of Costa Rica’s capital city San Jose, high up in the volcanic mountains of Heredia and Barva. This area is also part of Costa Rica’s famed Central Valley coffee growing region. It is washed and wet milled on site at the family’s private mill in Barva, and either sun dried or mechanically dried depending on weather and precipitation. The dried beans are safely stored in the parchment until the exact time it’s ready to ship. Then and only then is the parchment removed and the coffee prepped and sorted for export. Keeping the parchment on the green up until its point of export helps to retain moisture content, preserve acidity and protect unique varietal and farming characteristics, all of which are reflected in our cupping and quality scores.
