2023 Costa Rica Microlots
This August we are very excited to announce the imminent arrival of our slate of new 2023 Costa Rica Microlots. We have a honey process arriving from Olman Urena in the West Valley, a different honey process from a group of small farm holders in Tarrazu’s Santa Cruz, and four different microlots from Hacienda Sonora in the Central Valley. And as if all that isn’t enough, we also have a new crop of our Costa Rica Tarrazu Puma arriving alongside all of the new micros.
So let’s jump in and get into some of these new arrivals.

Third generation grower Olman Ureña Salazar has been producing coffee on his West Valley farm for over 25 years. His Honey Microlot processed at the neighboring state-of-the-art Palmichal micromill which includes patios for sun-drying, elevated bed, and a greenhouse with specially designed drum dryers for more inclement weather.
