The popular Costa Rican coffee growing region of Tarrazu is a high elevation area located in the municipality of Rosario. This coffee is grown and produced on the Santa Elena Estate owned by Luz Marina Trujillo. She grew up in a family of coffee producers. Luz Marina’s coffee is grown under shade. The perfectly ripe cherries are handpicked and sorted for quality at her own mil l. Our offering from the Santa Elena Estate has been processed using the Honey (miel in Spanish) process method. This process is also known as Pulped Natural. Unlike fully washed process coffees where all of the cherry fruit is washed away before drying, Honey process coffees are allowed to have a portion of the sweet coffee cherry fruit remain in contact with the coffee as it dried. This creates a nice balance of positive coffee acidity and sweet, fruity notes in the coffee. Costa Rica in particular, among other coffee producing Central American countries, has become well known for it’s Honey processed coffees.
