This is our third year purchasing gesha coffee from the famed Cafe de Altura mill in Costa Rica. Esteban Villalobos Corrales runs the mill and is in charge of the processing of coffees. He carefully monitors many parameters as the coffee ferments in specialized tanks and dries in static dryers. The result is a cup profile that is world renowned and attempted by many other producers, but never fully replicated.
This particular lot comes from Finca San Cristobal de Lano, which is owned by the Salazar family. Cristian and Grivin Salazar inherited this farm from their father, Danilo, who was well known for his passion and commitment to produce excellent quality coffee. His sons now have the privilege of continuing on his legacy, which is a great honour. On the farm they grow caturra, red catuai, geisha, SL-28, obata, L13 among other interesting varieties and this lot is a blend of both caturra and catuai that has been processed as a natural.
San Cristobal del Llano has been working with Cafe de Altura for over 12 years already. Danilo's family is one of the most emblematic and committed producers of our company, well known for their distinctive coffees and excellence as human beings.
