Tasting Notes:

This Swiss Water® Process coffee is an especially juicy bean, with lots of sweetness throughout the entire cup. Right off the bat we get a smooth nuttiness in the aroma as well as front and center on the palate with an indistinct acidity that’s also present yet not too sour. The flavor rounds out to a smooth milk chocolate-like finish.

Helsar de Zarcero Mill

This custom decaf is a blend of 2 single producer coffees from Costa Rica's West Valley region. As non-decafs, their coffees tasted clean and sweet and so no surprise the decaf returned to us fairs much the same. Both coffees were processed at Helsar de Zarcero, a mill we've worked with just about as long as we've been buying direct from Costa Rica! Helsar have always had an eye on quality improvement a conservation, being organic coffee farmers themselves. They employ a water conserving Penagos demucilager for washing the coffee, and then dry the wet parchment on covered patios, and raised beds, depending on the quality.
