It's been a bangin' year for Costa Rican coffees, and we're not through yet! Caffe Vita's newest Costa Rican is a honey-processed wonder of smooth, rich flavor. This light-medium roast carries a sweet cherry-limeade flavor on the front, reminiscent of the iconic cosmopolitan cocktail, with a syrupy body that's sweet as cotton candy. The finish is smooth, long-lasting, darkly sweet like butterscotch, or raw sugar. It's a real "honey" of a coffee, and showcases the magic of Costa Rica's innovative honey process.
This lot comes from Santa Elena estate, run by Luz Marina Trujillo. It's rare for a Central American coffee estate to be owned by a woman, but Luz Marina is a great example of success. Her sustainability program is one of the finest in the country, minimizing synthetic additions and relying on holistic solutions for fertilizers and pest control. It's no wonder her farm is one of the most renowned locations to find Central American coffee today — and one of the first to perfect honey processing in Costa Rica. As an extra dose of girl-power, this coffee was selected for Caffe Vita by their US Barista Champion, Sam Spillman. We say, brew it again, Sam!
Soft as apricot, sweet as cherry, and tangy as key lime pie, Caffe Vita's Costa Rica Santa Elena Honey is a stellar example of innovative coffee from one of the world's top specialty estates. Reserve your own bag today, and start your morning with a truly buzz-worthy cup.
