Costa Rica Tarrazu Asoproaaa Montez de Paz Rojo Miel
Rican farmers have been experimenting with the Miel (Honey) process,
leaving only a little fruit on the beans (white honey), medium amounts
(yellow honey) and lots (red honey.) Our normal Miel has been the
yellow, but after another cupping night we're trying the Red Honey
(Roja Miel) version. This is a small lot single estate coffee from the
Montez de Paz Farm, Asoproaaa is the co-op that the farmer, Luis Fernando Prado, is a member of. It has a rich, intense, pure coffee flavour and
aroma with medium acidity and a long smooth finish.
