Product Description


    Finca La Pastora is located in Santa Maria de Dota region of Tarrazu. The farm has been in the same family for over 60 years. The owner Minor Esquival Picado, has divided the farm into 3 separate farms, 2 for his daughters and La Pastora which he has built his micro mill. One of the more innovative producers in the area with concern for environmental impact all of his coffee is honey processed and dried on African beds. In addition to the coffee farms Minor has an organic fruit and vegetable farm at the top of the mountain (far too high for coffee to grow almost 8,600 FASL).

    Minor is fanatical about ripeness of fruit for his coffee. Only picking the Sangre de Toro (Bulls blood) colored cherries. The fruit is then transported to his micro mill Beneficio La Pastora, and processed only removing the skin of the cherry keeping all of miel intact on the parchment. The honeyed parchment is then spread out on raised beds to dry for 14-20 days. This level of attention to processing creates an exceptional grade of coffee.
