Costa Rica Micro Lot Series - San Cristobal Natural
This coffee comes direct from the farm to Oceana Coffee, after our Costa Rica buying trip back in early 2018. We were highly impressed with how this coffee cupped and the results so far have shown it's not just us that think it's an amazing coffee.
During its first public outing it scored 2 x Silver medals at the 2018 Golden Bean North America.
Finca San Cristobal de Llano is owned by Danilo Salazar Arias, and is located on 17 hectares of land in Llano Bonito, Naranjo. Danilo has been producing coffee for over fifty years, and grows not only coffee, but also bananas, plantains, and peaches on his farm. He is a member of Cafe de Altura de San Ramon, an organization founded in 2004 to process coffee throughout Costa Rica. This particular lot comes to Oceana Coffee from the association’s micro lot program, which sources coffee from West Valley, Central Valley, Tres Rios, and Tarrazu and trucks them to a central milling facility in San Ramon for processing. The association works hard to provide its more than 500 producers with the knowledge and resources they need to sell their coffee for the premiums it deserves.
