Costa Rica Don Eli Montero Coffee

Grind Level Guide

Notify me when this product is available:

Last year we had a very good Costa Rican coffee.  It was called La Patricia and I wish I had bought more of it.  We sold out quickly.  Fast forward to this year and it turns out that the La Patricia coffee came from Manuel Montero's farm.  He has since gone in with his brother to purchase a MicroMill and this year we were able to get our hands on a small lot of a honey processed coffee from that micromill (Beneficio Ecologico Don Eli).  I intend to get some more of the La Patricia coffee very soon, but in the meantime check out this one from Carlos's farm.

Tasting Notes:

This honey processed coffee comes from a beautiful farm in Costa Rica.  When test roasting this coffee, I kept getting drawn into it's darker profile.  There was one point, where I thought about releasing it as a medium roast coffee, but after a couple of days, I tried the dark roast sample and knew it would end up becoming a favorite for anyone that likes a bolder more rich coffee. In fact, this is easily the best Latin American espresso we've ever produced.  The flavor notes of this coffee are incredible.  It is rich and sweet.  There is a perfect caramel sweetness to it, with a cinnamon finish.  I think if you made a caramel latte with it, you wouldn't need caramel.

Coffee Lover

So glad to find Sagebrush. I am an amateur coffee roaster that is currently unable to roast my own as I am living in a temporary apartment and it just isn’t possible to roast here. All commercial coffee is stale. Sagebrush not only roasts to ship, they roast for taste and profile of the bean. Best coffee I have had and the best roasting job I have had. Highly recommend Sagebrush.

Every cup seems to a new flavor- an enjoyable flavor. I sure like the Ethiopia coffees always good and this one of my favorites.

Best customer service!

I purchased the sampler 2 pack and received the Kenya Gold and the Costa Rica which is a rich honey process ! They both are great.. Ground for my Kuerig

Very strong but not in flavor

Maybe I ordered the wrong coffee?
