About this coffee

This view is indeed quite beautiful from atop Bella Vista, Don Mayo's farm in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. Eager onlookers can stroll through the farm, gazing down at a reservoir far below. And if you ask us -- or our customers and friends who guzzled this coffee down last year -- this coffee soars to the same heights as its home farm.

As a "white honey" coffee, the Bella Vista's processing certainly makes it unique. Perched in the middle ground between a naturally-processed and fully-washed coffee, white honey-processed coffee means the coffee is washed in its sunrise-colored cherry, but is stripped of its skin and most of its mucilage before drying. This process imbues the coffee with the depth and fruitiness (dried apples!) of a natural, while tossing in the complexities (honey! dark chocolate!) of its fully-washed counterparts.

This is a gorgeous, balanced, and interesting coffee. Our favorite view? Looking down at a cup of Bella Vista on a nice (soon-to-be chilly?) morning.

Tasting Notes

Dried Apples, Honey, Dark Chocolate

Brewing Recommendation

This coffee shines when filter brewed: we suggest the Chemex or Kalita brewing devices. Generally, filter brewing produces better coffee clarity (ability to tell flavors apart) than body (texture, weight in your mouth) and we love this coffee's clarity.

RATIO: 16:1 (Example: 400 grams water, 25 grams coffee produces 12 ounce cup)
