This wonderful Microlot from Costa Rica has soft citric acidity upfront with notes of red berries, dried dates and brown sugar before a lasting caramel aftertaste. An easy-to-drink cup of coffee that will bring balance and harmony to your stressful day.
Oscar and Olga work very hard to create this magical place where speciality coffee is grown. The borders of the coffee fields are full of flowers, grown by Olga as well as medicinal herbs and a small Geisha tree. They work in harmony with natural in an environmentally friendly way. Their daughter Pilas helps them on the farm when not working as a teacher.
‘’Genesis’’ – beginning the transformation towards producing in harmony with nature and is fitting for this family farm. As they embarked on a new adventure of picking, processing and selling their coffee cherries direct to Union; whilst also growing wild flowers and medicinal herbs, they work hard to produce high quality, speciality coffee.
No pesticides or chemicals are used in the production of the coffee, so it is effectively organic, just not certified.
Genesis farm is the creation of Oscar and Olga Mendez who process their own coffee in their tiny microbeneficio they constructed in 2007. Genesis represents their environmental and ecological dream to sell their own coffee autonomously rather than anonymously into the local mill where its identity was lost.
Oscar has a determination that is almost theological and has created a farm with lush shade trees and bright colour Bird-of-Paradise and hibiscus flowers established throughout. The coffee trees are randomly spaced throughout the farm
amoungst the flowers, not in regimental rows normally seen in coffee plantations. No pesticides or chemicals are used on this farm so it is effectively organic, but not certified.
