balanced & funfy raw chocolate
San Marcos - Costa Rica
The farm in San Marcos is one of four different farms belonging to the Gutierrez family, and that Daniela manages. She is 25 years old, and studied Engineering before returning to her family farms to take over the wet and dry milling operation.
This lot from San Marcos is Caturra and Catuai mix. When we visited Daniela in February it was great to see and hear her continued dedication to working in coffee and her interest in developing the families production. It is really important that the younger generation have an interest in continuing to produce coffee in this area.
Darker berries,raw cacao, fruit juice, purple grape and wine-like acidity. Juicy and complex. Nice tart apple finish. Good intensity.
