Additional Notes: When sourcing a coffee we look for balance between acidity, sweet and interesting funky notes. Sometimes however we taste something that is not balanced at all. This is that coffee. It is all about sweetness and we love it! If you struggle to extract sweet flavours from a coffee then give this one a try, you wont be disappointed.
Las Palomas spans six hectares and produces around 250 fanegas (a fenega is approx. 46kg) of coffee annually. The farm is named Las Palomas because of the various birds that can be found in the region. Don Jorge employs two full-time farm workers, and a group of 25 collectors visit the farm during the harvest season, moving between Las Palomas and the neighbouring farms.
Coffee is delivered to the nearby Association of Agricultural Producers of the Communities of Acosta and Aserrí (ASOPROAAA), who process coffee and citrus in the areas of Acosta, Jorco and Palmichal, as well as offering fi nancial, commercial and technical support to its members
