NOTES: Our Costa Rican favorite. Smooth caramel with notes of sweet cherry, bright citrus with a dark chocolate finish.
BACKGROUND: The weather conditions for the Deredia coffee in Heredia make it easy to produce high quality Arabica strictly hard beans. Summer and winter seasons are well defined and there is a good distribution of rain during the winter season. The volcanic soil has a high content of organic material. The cherries from the Deredia brand are de-pulped and then naturally fermented for about six hours, using clean water. The coffee is milled at Beneficio Libertad, which received recognition for proper environmental and health conditions. This coffee is grown by Cooperativa de Caficultores de Heredia which was founded in 1961 and is now home to 1,100 producers.
