Costa Rica - La Cima 2017
Cupping Notes: Black Currant, Green Apple, Caramel
This coffee represents the community of La Cima, or "The Top," referring to its mountainous perch in Perez Zeledon. The region is populated by immigrants from the Central Valley who, toward the end of the 19th century, noted the area's gentle climate and rich soil and resettled with their coffee crops. Coffee has since significantly contributed to the region's social and economic development and generated a culture of values and principles built on family unity. Farms here dot the southeastern slopes of the Talamanca mountain range and on average are about 3.25 hectares(8 acres).
The climate is ideal for coffee production, and the region produces coffees with outstanding aromas and acidity. But yields here are lower than the country average. Our Volcafe Way farmer support teams have been working with producers to help them implement new agroforestry systems to enrich the soil with organic material and ensure a consistent production of high-quality coffees.
