Las Truchas

Why We Love It

“The Las Truchas is light and refreshing with sweet notes like a glass fresh juice. A perfect summer cup.” — Raina Figueroa, Quality Control 

 

About this coffee

After years as a professional soccer player in Costa Rica, producer Juan Rafael Montero decided to retire and try his hand at growing organic avocados. After a particularly bad crop year, Rafael transitioned Finca Monteroga to coffee on the suggestion of a neighbor. Today, Juan Rafael takes an environmentally conscious approach to growing and harvesting his coffee, even using his old avocado trees as shade cover.

Toby’s Estate is excited to offer this special microlot on our menu this summer. Sweet and refreshing, the Las Truchas is a perfect brunch companion.
