 The Villa Sarchi coffee variety is native to Costa Rica, a natural mutation of Bourbon discovered in the 1950’s. Its a dwarf plant with potential for very high quality, regularly placing in the top 10 of Costa Ricas, Cup of Excellence program.

We find flavours of watermelon, milk chocolate and nougat. Its extremely sweet with a silky body.

This particular lot has been naturally processed in a very unique way. Firstly the cherries are dried on beds for a week, this is done in the garden rather than the patios, here it’s a little cooler leading to slower fermentation. The cherries are then moved into sealed barrels, this is sometimes referred to as Anaerobic fermentation. Finally the cherries are finished in dryers slowly till they reach 10% moisture.
