Aguilera Family - Costa Rica Finca de Licho JANUARY 2013
This Costa Rican Licho, a coffee that we first bought in Cup of Excellence auctions a number of years back in 2007, where it finished 4th. This is now its fifth year with us. It is also a coffee that shows our development as a roaster. First we bought this coffee in the Cup of Excellence program (a great way to meet a grower). Then we bought it from an import broker; because we are a small coffee buyer, they helped us bring in this coffee. Then last year, I went out to the farm and did the deal on the farm with one of the brothers.
Grown in the region of Naranjo in the volcanic Northern Cordiles corridor of the Western Valley by the Aguilera brothers, it is cultivated at an altitude of 1500 metres above sea level. The varietal is carefully selected Villa Sarchi with some Caturra (around 30%).
A great coffee from a great family who love what they do. Long may this relationship continue
