2015 Special Coffees
When our coffee buyers travel, they always look for a special coffee to bring home. In 2015, they found two special coffees to share with customers.
The first coffee commanded their attention. It was clearly the best coffee they tasted at the day’s cupping table and on that buying trip. Grown and milled by Antonio Barrantes at the Herbazu Estate in the West Valley of Costa Rica, this SL-28 is a Kenya varietal. Barrantes processed it at the Herbazu Micro Mill which is in the center of the coffee farm. Our buyers bought the Herbazu SL-28 immediately. Months later, we learned that coffee won 1st Place in Costa Rica’s Cup of Excellence. You can enjoy the best coffee Coast Rica produced this year or gift it this season. Ladro’s Herbazu SL-28 is available in 200 gram bags for $22.00. With bright notes of starfruit and key lime, this coffee mellows into a creamy body with a long savory finish. It’s fantastic!
