Roger Ureña Hidalgo was introduced to coffee growing at an early age and has since made it his life’s work to produce high-quality coffees in Costa Rica. White honey-processed coffees tend to be mechanically washed, leaving minimal mucilage around the bean (80-100% removed). The mucilage is sweet and golden brown like honey which is where we get the name of the process. Then, they are transferred to raised beds to dry for a period of weeks. The rules can vary from farm to farm, but it blends aspects of the washed and natural processes to form a unique experience in the cup. We taste notes of chocolate bar, melon, and hazelnut.
What is Single Origin Coffee? Unlike coffee blends, Single Origin Coffee has a single geographic origin. This could be a single farm or a single country. For the majority of these coffees, we will have a direct relationship with the farmer who grows them. Because coffee is a crop, harvesting is seasonal and the timing is specific to each region, our selection of single-origin coffees will vary throughout the year.
To make it extra special, we commissioned local artist, Alicia Binkley of Monkey Ink Design to illustrate our Single Origin labels. Enjoy!
