Costa Rica La Falda Medium Roast
An elegant coffee from Costa Rica, this one has flavours of stone fruits, sweetness with a silky body.
The coffee is produced in San Ignacio de Acosta, two hours away from San José (the country's Capital) at a farm called “La Falda”. La Falda means skirt in Spanish and the name is due to the topography of the farm, where coffee plantations wrap around a small mountain looking like a skirt. The Owner, Miguel Diaz, inherited the farm from his dad recently and even though he is on his early 30s he has gathered the best knowledge out of the old school (his dad) and new practices recommended by engineers.
Four years ago Palmichal Micro-Mill took the decision to process the coffee beans from La Falda Farm in its micro-mill due to its pristine location, farm practices and commitment to harvesting only the ripest of cherries. After years of working together Palmichal has been able to evaluate La Falda’s consistency in its cup year after year. The idea is to continue with this long-term relationship far into the future.
Hunting is illegal in Costa Rica however there are always people who don’t obey the laws.
Miguel has a serious commitment to keep illegal hunting away from his area. At La Falda you can see a lot of animals like rabbits, raccoons, squirrels, a huge variety of birds and more.
