We are so excited to be showcasing this honey lot from La Candelilla in Tarrazu, Costa Rica this year.
This coffee is unbelievably clean with fantastic sweetness and a syrupy body and mouthfeel making it wonderfully versatile. It is complex enough to enjoy without milk but has enough balance to perform well with it too. We are getting best results using something like the Aeropress to accentuate the mouthfeel of this coffee but it is hard to go too wrong with it in all honesty!
Costa Rica has built and incredible reputation for specialty coffee over the last decade or so becoming infamous for its micro lot production. It is also quickly becoming an amazing leader on environmental issues too.
Traditionally, coffee from Costa Rica was bulked and sold – however the higher production costs made it impossible for the country to compete with neighbouring Nicaragua. Specialty coffee production has therefore become the focus and, in many ways, no one does it better!
The Sanchez family are third generation coffee producers and are well known in the region of San Marcos where the seven siblings have farms as well as a joint partnership with the La Candelilla mill – the company responsible for attentively processing the cherry collected from these farms and the surrounding areas. The establishment of the mill came about to bring more control to the post-harvest processing and you can really taste the results of this in the cup.
Once you have placed your order, you will receive an email to confirm it is being processed and then another one to let you know when it has been dispatched. We are currently operating with 3 working day lead time to process your order once you have placed it.
Local pickups take place from the Roastery on Tong Road. Please note our shutter doors will be down for security and temperature reasons but we are always in Monday-Friday between 9 and 5pm – just ring the doorbell on arrival. We are offering free shipping for orders above £20 🙂
Will order more of this
Nearly finished this Costa Rican coffee and would thoroughly recommend it.
I tend to buy Central/ South American coffee as I find it suits my palate. If you're a fan of coffee from these regions you will enjoy it.
The past 12 months I have loved the honey coffees that have become more available. This is another excellent example. Well worth trying.
Smooth, delicious and you can definitely taste the honey. This coffee is absolutely my new favourite, I'll be buying more.
My first beans from North Star, really impressed! Dialed in pretty fast and could get the notes quite well for a beginner like myself - very tasty bought another bag!
We work directly with growers we know and trust to source specialty grade coffee from farms that promote agroforestry techniques and social responsibility to not just sustain, but to improve how things work.Find out more
