This is one of two coffees we are offering from the famous Las Lajas mill and the Cumbres del Poas estate in Costa Rica. They use a special meter to measure coffee cherry sweetness during the harvest and only allow the sweetest cherries into the lot marked "Alma Negra" or Black Soul.
This farm hardly uses any water and doesn't wash any of their coffees so they can focus on the natural and honey processed coffees. This practice also helps them lower their carbon footprint.
In this coffee, you'll taste notes of sweet cherry, hints of strawberry, and fermented berries akin to red wine. It has a nice full, creamy body and a tannic finish like a wine. almost like fermented or baked berries. This coffee is great for any drip method or full immersion (Aeropress/French Press) and also makes great espresso.
