This is a rare micro-lot, which presents a very unique flavour profile. Red wine, Berry Jam, Cranberry acidity, yet smooth and silky. We find that this coffee tastes best when brewed as a filter coffee or french press.
Alto San Juan Micromill is owned by an intrepid young producer named Diego Abarca, who took a plot of land from his family’s farm, given to him by his father, and transformed it into a successful business as a coffee producer in his own right. His yields have grown every year, and it has allowed him to attempt more experimentation in addition to having tighter quality control: While he primarily focuses on Washed coffees in order to streamline his processing, Diego has recently begun experimenting with Honey and Natural processes as wells.
