Costa Rica Herbazu

Tropical fruit, Marshmallow, Lemon Meringue

Limited Time Offering, Direct Trade  •  Sourced from Herbazu, one of the leading coffee innovators in Costa Rica, this rare Typica Lima coffee is sure to please even the most demanding coffee enthusiast. Incredibly sweet and balanced, we taste notes of marzipan and fruit cocktail. Using trees sourced from Peru, this coffee is grown in an experimental garden next to Geisha, SL-28 and other prized coffee varieties. We cupped them all this season and this lot was the most dynamic and interesting. If you're looking to treat yourself, or a friend, don't pass this one up before it's all gone.
