Everyone knows their favorite varietal of wine...pinot noir, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, etc. Whatever it is you probably also know what country and even region of the world you like that particular varietal from, like a Pinot noir from Napa valley or a sangiovese from the tuscan region of Italy. You may even know what particular vineyard you like wines from. We want you to know the same for coffee. Obviously not all coffee is the same. What country the coffee is grown, how its processed, and what varietal the coffee is all effect the flavor profile. As we continue introducing new Black Label coffees we hope you start learning those particular details of the coffees and figuring out what regions and varietals you like.
What we are calling Costa Rica SL28 is a coffee from Costa Rica from the farm Finca Noylin in the Orosí Valley. The varietal of coffee is SL28. It is the same varietal of the Kenyan AA we offered in June of 2019. It has a silky smooth body with juicy notes of pineapple, grapefruits, and pears. If you liked the Kenyan AA last year you will love this coffee.
Manuel Rodriguez purchased Finca Noylin in 2013. The finca was 2 hectares in size and had a total production of 10 fanegas. Manuel since has grown the farm and started his on micro mill, Beneficio Rusticos. Recently Manuel has incorporated the use of organic fertilizers, weed management strategies and biological controllers into the farm's agricultural practices. He hopes to continue to grow his production and looks to continue experimenting with different varietals (Villa Sarchi, Bourbon, SL 28, Mundo Novo, to name a few)
