Costa Rica Herbazu
From the hills of the West Valley, this complex coffee is one of the most sought after products of Costa Rica. Consistently bright and incredibly complex, your palette will experience notes of sweet lemon and brown sugar.
Our price for this exclusive coffee reflect the limited quantity of the crop yield (around 50-60 bags) and high quality of the coffee. We were able to purchase one bag of green beans this year which means it will have limited availability that will be roasted by order.
Coffees from the Herbazu Mill in the West Valley in Costa Rica are rich in history and flavor. “Herbazu” stands for Hermanos Barrantes Zuniga, which consists of four brothers and their sister of third generation farmers. They were one of the first farms in the region to import and plant SL-28. By processing their own coffee they are able to retain more control of the quality and add value to their product. The mill comprises processing machinery, drying patios, raised beds and covered beds alike, allowing the family to try different experiments.This coffee has won Cup of Excellence in the past and our head barista has actually used it to compete with.
