Costa Rica El Cuminate Gold Label
It's been a while since we had a Costa Rican coffee in our offerings. This one was the coffee we've been waiting for. It has cherry, lemon, and toasted almond notes, with a silky body, tart, orange acidity and fruity-red aftertaste. The lighter roast draws more fruited notes, but for me is a little tart, so I like to roast this one darker, so you get an almond flavor with hints of fruit.
The lot derives its name from the area it was sourced from, San Juanillo, in the Naranjo region’s highest mountains. Originally, Naranjo was called “Los Naranjos,” due to its abundance of orange coffee trees. Naranjo has a great religious influence and is home to the Basilica of Our Lady of Mercies, a historical and architectural heritage site of Costa Rica. Each August, the Basilica, which is an unusual mix of Colonial and Byzantine architecture, is the focus of a pilgrimage by millions of Catholics.
