For the second year running, we are excited to welcome back the coffee of Roger Umaña Hidalgo’s Costa Rican micromill, Santa Teresa 2000.
Hidalgo’s farm, La Montaña, comprises a collection of unique plots situated at elevations between 1,900 and 2,150 meters above sea level. Like many producers in Costa Rica, land of pura vida, Hidalgo is a passionate steward of his land, and every aspect of the farm’s operation is weighed against the effect it will have on the land. The farm is part of a government program for sustainable agriculture, and has begun the process to receive a carbon neutral certification.
This year’s Santa Teresa 2000 is a Red Catuai from the Finca Dota plot that undergoes a white honey processing, which when combined with the slow maturation that occurs at high altitude, results in a coffee that is both delicate and complex. Full of rich, deep, caramelized notes, this is a delightfully drinkable cup.
