This coffee comes from a group of farms operated by the Gamboa Leiva siblings in the Tarrazú region of Costa Rica. Each farm is owned and managed by an individual sibling, though they’re all geographically connected via small roads or trails, called “trillos” in Spanish. The family stays very close and makes their decisions together, and are all 100% dedicated to coffee farming.

Today, the head of the family is brother Heiner Gamboa Leiva, with his siblings Elsi, Olivier, Franklin, Blanca Nieves, Ronal, Hancer, and Gretel all working on their own nearby plot of land. The siblings carry a deep admiration for their father, Don Tuto, who was initially in charge of all of the farms now collectively called “El Trillo,” and served as a good example for not only the family but the local community as well.

This coffee underwent Black Honey processing at the Palmichal micromill. After being delivered to the mill, coffee cherries are pulped and 100% of the mucilage is left on the parchment coffee. The coffee was dried for 11 days on cement patios before being finished in a drum dryer to ensure better moisture content uniformity. The coffee rested in parchment for two months before being milled, sorted by weight, density, size, and color, and packaged for export.

Region

Tarrazú

The Tarrazú region lies in the high mountains of the southern Pacific region south of Costa Rica’s capital city of San Jose and is one of the most densely planted high altitude regions in Central America, with many farms at or above 2000 meters above sea level. It is locally known as “Zona de Los Santos” for the number of towns with “San” or “Santa” in their names.

Tarrazú’s climate is characterized by two well-defined seasons; a rainy season lasting seven months (May through November) and a dry season (December through April). This encourages uniform coffee blossoming. On average, precipitation is between 2,400 millimeters (94.5 inches) per year, with an average annual temperature of 19°C (66.2°F).
