The story of how the Don Pepe Micromill was found is one that should be made into a movie. Picture our supplier’s green bean buyer Piero, doing fieldwork in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. His rented Land Cruiser blows a tire, and who should drive by but the man himself, Don Cesar Urena. With an impressive moustache and kind eyes, Don Cesar took Piero back to his home to fix his tyre. By chance, Piero looked outside and saw raised beds with an incredibly impressive looking cherry selection on them… from here, the rest is history.
Our supplier has come to form a strong bond with Don Cesar Urena to the point where they import nearly all of Don Cesar’s coffee. We are lucky enough to have gotten our hot little hands on this coffee. Don Cesar’s natural and honey processing is ingenious and he has educated his partner farms in cherry selection to ensure all the cherries that go through this mill are of the ideal ripened state.
Displaying flavours of fruit and nut dark chocolate along with stewed elderberry, this coffee has a winey acidity that will have you coming back for cup after cup. Suitable for all brew methods we would recommend drinking this coffee black or as a piccolo to really enjoy all the flavour profiles it has to offer.
