Costa Rica San Rafael Carlos Fernández Morera Zoom

Costa Rica San Rafael Carlos Fernández Morera

We are so excited to have a very small batch of this Cup of Excellence top 5 finisher!!


It is at once immensely unique, immediately delicious, and irrepressibly nostalgic. Undeniable notes of gingerbread and cinnamon toast are its hallmarks, eliciting nearly unanimous descriptors. These top notes are accented by a sugary sweetness and a fruitiness clean enough to integrate seamlessly and bold enough stand out in a complex and thought-provoking sensory landscape.

Product Description

    Details

    This is Carlos Fernández Morera 61st season growing coffee in San Rafael de San Ramón. His deep connection to his trees and the soil he works is evident in the way he talks. “Coffee is a very grateful crop,” he says. “If you dedicate a little love, it responds very well… The earth is a living element, we must take care of it, pamper it, so that it transmits to the coffee plant all its force.” 

    The plot of the farm where this award-winning lot originates is called Diamante (“the Diamond”). It contains Caturra and Catuaí cultivars, though other varieties more resistant to rust have been planted in recent years in other areas of El Cerro. After pulping the coffee undergoes a sealed-tank anaerobic fermentation process. A selection of mucilage and a little water are added to the mix, and the slurry is closely monitored for pH, temperature, brix, and a host of other variables. Under a watchful eye, the high degree of environmental control this allows contributes immeasurably to the coffee’s flavor. Thereafter the lot is dried for 3 days on a patio before moving to raised beds for another eighteen days of drying.

    Diamante placed 4th in this year’s Cup of Excellence competition. We’re proud to be offering the very same award-winning lot.
