Hacienda La Minita – Costa Rica Tarrazu
From the famous La Minita Estate
La Minita is perhaps the best known of all the coffees from the Tarrazu growing region. It has received considerable press exposure and public acclaim, and now they are into their twelfth year. This year’s coffee has an extraordinary taste of a fine milk chocolate truffle, it is as good as any coffee that Hacienda La Minita has ever produced. Simply put, this coffee is terrific and thoroughly enjoyable. La Minita prides itself on being amongst the most meticulously grown and prepared coffees in the world. The La Minita plantation lies on 700 acres in the steeply graded, mountainous Tarrazu region with elevations between 4,000 to 7,000 feet. The estate farm produces several qualities of coffee but their signature coffee, La Minita Tarrazu, has very limited production; approximately 1700 bags per year . The attention to detail is extreme, beginning with what can be described as ordinary gardening techniques, but on a large scale, as all the work is done by hand..
