About this coffee :

Don Cayito is grown in Santa Maria de Dota, located in the Tarrazu coffee region, Costa Rica. The coffee plantations are located at 1650 – 2100 masl in a wonderful landscape of steep slopes, that protect the crops from the Atlantic weather but allow the ocean breeze from the Pacific, with lots of sunny hours during the day. The area is already known as a land of exceptional coffee, not only for the characteristics of its soil but also for the experience and hard work of its coffee farmers.

In search of a high quality standard, since 2009 the farmers have started processing the coffee in their own micro mill in Los Angeles. Thanks to opening the mill they are now able to carry on the work and care in cultivation to processing, dividing the harvest into lots and micro-lots according to the basis of bean variety and the process that will be applied (washed, honey or natural).

In their fields, traditional Costa-Rican varieties are cultivated, like Caturra and Catuai Red and Yellow, as well as more exotic varieties sought by the boutique coffee market like Typica, SL 28 and Geisha, among others.

You can expect an extremely clean & obvious honey sweetness in every sip of this coffee, which is originated from a farm with a long history of award winning coffees in Costa Rica. We really enjoy this coffee in filter coffee, where nectarine sweetness presents itself delightfully with a long finish of sunflower seeds,
