COSTA RICA - Monte Brisas - Medium Roast
Maria Elena Castro and son Luis Salazar opened their micro mill, Beneficio Monte Brisas, back in 2011 after years of delivering their coffee cherry to other mills and cooperatives. Maria Elena's farm, Finca La Salaca, sits at 1750 meters above sea level on the lush mountainous slopes of Zarcero in Costa Rica's famed West Valley growing region.
This coffee has a very clean profile with raw sugar notes, like demerara and sucanat. Fruits are mild, but come through with more clarity as the coffee cools. Hints of citrus and apple add to this coffee's vibrant side, and a note of English Breakfast tea gives off a brisk impression.
