Santa Lucia Costa RicaDetour Coffee Roasters
This wonderful lot comes to us from producer Ricardo Barrantes' farm Finca Santa Lucia and is processed at his family owned micro-mill, Helsar de Zarcero. In Costa Rica, they rarely use fermentation tanks to remove the pulp. Instead, they use a centrifugal washer which spins the mucilage off the bean. With this process, you can leave on as little as 10% or as much as 90% of the fruit or “honey.” His mastery of this wet milling process produced this exciting yellow honey processed coffee that is full of tropical aromatics, a luscious pineapple sweetness and notes of sponge toffee and nougat.
