Tasting Notes:

Among the table of coffees we cupped for dialing in flavor notes, this coffee was head and shoulders above the rest in uniqueness, especially in the body. This bean has such a  light and smooth mouthfeel, it’s classic SL28 acidity brings a much more subtle tang that pairs with the body extremely well. All our flavor notes point to a muted sweetness alongside a prominent water-like thinness.

La Alquimia Coffee Production

The saying "don't work with your family" doesn't always apply to coffee, and some of the best producers we have met work closely with parents, children, siblings, cousins—all their close relations. Cerro San Luis Micromill in Costa Rica's West Valley is no different: The mill and its affiliated farms are run by a pair of second-generation coffee-producing sisters and their husbands. The family's farms are adjacent to one another, and the micromill they share is located at the family home not far away.

There are more than 10 different types of coffees grown on the various farms run by the sisters and their husbands, including Caturra, Bourbon and Orange Bourbon, SL-28, Cataui and Yellow Catuai, and Villa Sarchi. After the coffee cherry is harvested, it's brought to the mill for processing: Coffees here might be finished as Washed, Honey, or Natural lots.
