Brewing Recipe

Filter

The bean

FARM: Pie San

MICROMILL : La Lia micromill

REGION: San Lorenzo de Tarrazu, Tarrazu

COUNTRY: Costa Rica

ELEVATION: 1900 masl

VARIETY: Catuai

PROCESS: White honey

Particularities

La Lia was founded in 2007 during a movement called the micro-mill revolution in Costa Rica. It was in the early 2000s that some producers began to build their own post-harvest facilities to process their cherries as well as those from neighboring farms. By pulping, fermenting, and drying their coffees themselves, these producers can better control the quality of the process, add value, and obtain a better price stability in a very difficult market. There are now nearly 200 micromills in Costa Rica and the demand for high quality microlots continues to grow.

STORY

Back for a sixth consecutive year, it is a privilege to reintroduce a lot from the Monge Ureña brothers on our menu. It was on our first trip to Costa Rica in 2017 that we selected our first lot from dozens of samples and began the relationship. Since then, we have had the chance to visit them every year, forge close ties and roast several of their exceptional lots. The coffee we have selected this year comes more precisely from one of their farms called Pie San. It is a 100% Catuai variety, grown at more than 1900 meters above sea level, the highest point of their land. It is processed according to the honey method, a hybrid between the washed and the natural where the parchment dries surrounded by a part of the pulp of the cherry.
