Taste: Bright and sweet with hints of brown sugar and butter pecan ice cream.

Roast: Roasts beautifully at Medium (City Roast) but also accepts a darker roast which brings out the more earthy notes of this bean.

About: La Candelilla was one of the first micromills in Tarrazú, opening in the year 2000, though the idea to open the mill came to the growers in 1997, during a coffee crisis. It’s a collaboratively owned micromill, established by 7 smallholder producers in Tarrazú: The farmers who use it and deliver their harvests to the mill share ownership. This lot is from one of the founders of the mill, Ricardo Hernandez Naranjo, who was one of the first to suggest to his farmer mates that they should start the “mini beneficio.”

Don Ricardo has been growing coffee for 32 years, and is dedicated to the process, as are many of the producers who utilize La Candelilla. Don Ricardo also worked for 10 years as a consultant at beneficios in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Panama, and even Tanzania, helping mills improve their processing and learning more about coffee quality.

“The production of processing specialty coffees is something I have been studying for 15 years,” he says through a translator. “I have had to develop the processes as well as to identify the different varieties for special batches.” He grows several different varieties and processes them in many ways, including this classic  presentation of a Typica variety.

His trees grow in rich ultisol, which is a type of red-clay soil that is particularly fertile in humid tropical or subtropical areas. This soil composition contains no calcium carbonate or lime. Once the ripe cherry is brought to the mill, it is processed depending on the profile and the weather.

*Microlot Coffee Offerings: Farmers are paid quality premiums for any microlot coffee, which reflects the extra planning, effort, labor, and attention to detail required to produce them, as well as rewarding the ultimate job well done.

    I was introduced to Costa Rican coffee when my daughter vacationed there and brought a bag home for me to try. It was great coffee and it wasn’t even freshly roasted or from a single plantation. Years passed and I tasted La Minita and fell in love with Costa Rican coffee again. Then I tried Finca La Catarata-Typica Honey and it has become a new favorite.
    It has a unique quality to its brew that really appeals to me, in the same way I used to like a nicely oaked Chardonnay. I roast it medium and I often drink it with cream, not half and half or milk, real cream. Many times I just want my coffee naked and it makes a smooth, lovely cup of black coffee especially when it is freshly ground and brewed in my Cuisinart coffee maker and served in my U-Roast-Em mug.
