Located in the San Pablo de Leon Cortes of the Tarrazu Region, this micro-mill (a small farm with its own wet mill and processing center) run by Javier Meza produces a maximum of 250 sacks of coffee of per year, and was established in response to the multi-national coffee crisis in the late 90’s (see: “Breakdown of the 1989 agreement” here).
Roast Style: Espresso Roast
This Rosebud Espresso blend is a masterful mixture of coffees from 3 different destinations, each one adding a critical component to create a wonderfully well-rounded shot of espresso. This versatile blend, made up of one part Brazilian, one part naturally processed Ethiopian, and one part washed Central American, will pull a superb shot, a lovely latte, as well as an amazing Americano. The shot will start bold and end with a caramel like sweetness, and has hints of nutty cocoa and sweet fruit in between.
A balanced blend of various coffees, that when paired together, hold up very well to a slightly darker roast level. Bold and complex with a thick syrupy body.
