La Candelilla - Costa Rica


This coffee comes from the fruit of a coffee variety that typically only grows on the other side of the world in Kenya, the famed SL-28 variety. The La Candelilla Micromill keeps a few select hectares planted as an experimental variety. We found it to be much more complex than other Costa Rican coffee's we've sampled this season, a credit to the varieties African heritage, but it's also a case study into just how much terroir and processing play in a coffee's final flavor profile. You'll find that typical toffee and cocoa profile prevalent here, but it's not reaching to say there's quite a bit of fruit happening here as well.
