dried mango, rum, almond joy

Farm: Canet
Producer: Ivan Solis
Region: Los Santos, Santa María de Dota
Altitude: 1900 masl
Variety: Catuai
Process: Raisin Honey

This Catuai lot was grown by Ronald Madrigal Chacon at his Canet farm, and then processed by the legendary Ivan Solis at his own small dry mill. After 72 hours of anaerobic fermentation in tanks, and then 72 hours of fermentation on raised beds, the cherries are de-puled and sun-dried for 14 days. The result is a cup brimming with boozy & tropical notes like dried mango, mai tai, and almond joy candy. This is a coffee that is truly unlike anything we've offered before, and we're excited to share such a unique coffee with you.

Lot Information from Selva:

Ivan works in conjunction with out standing coffee growers around the Los Santos growing region. This particular lot belongs to Ronald Madrigal Chacon, it’s an 8 hectare lot in an altitude of 1900 masl, located  in one of the highest points of Los Santos. Canet is the name of a wonderful valley notched into the hills of the Talamanca Mountain Range in Costa Rica, which is home to the Tarrazu growing region. Some of the best coffees produced in this region are grown in the towns and farms in Canet. Due to its position and unique micro climate, the Canet Valley (which this farm is named after) is able to grow the highest quality coffee cherries. The conditions paired with the expert farm management of Ronald gives Ivan an amazing fruit to process in the wet mill.

Processing Information:

After the workers collect the ripe cherries they bring them to Ivan´s mill, they wash the cherries with clean water, then they put the coffee in tanks to rest for 72 hours, after this they take the fruit out of the tanks and put them to rest in raised beds for 72 more hours. At the end they de-pulped the cherries leaving as much mucilage as possible and put it again on raised beds to sun dry for 14 days.

We roast on Tuesday and Thursday. Your order will be shipped or available for local pick up on Friday. 

This coffee is whole bean and is packaged in 12oz, 2lb, and 5lb bags.
