COSTA RICA

FINCA EL VENADO | YELLOW HONEY | SL28

Cerro San Luis is a micromill run by Magali and her brother Alexander Delgado. They have their own two farms, where they grow various varieties like Caturry, Catuaí, Geisha, Villa Sarchí and the very exceptional SL28 variety that originally comes from Kenia. SL28 is a very rare variety and brings complex and special flavors. The special thing about this coffee is the combination of this variety and the special process – yellow honey. At Finca el Venado, traceability is ensured through good separation of the different lots by variety and process. On the Pacific slope, these privileged lands have well defined wet and dry season. The fertile volcanic soils of the West Valley produce an excellent cup profile.
