We will release our new direct trade micro-lot coffee Costa Rica La Lia Pie San on March 3, 2018, at the Red Cedar Coffee Co. Tasting Room in Berea, Ohio.
Luis Alberto Monge Ureña acquired the farm Pie San in 2012 and this is the highest elevation of the family’s six farms. Luis works closely with his brother Oscar to manage their farms and to process their coffee harvest.
The family owns their micro-mill, La Lia, which means the best care and attention is given to the farm’s crop. The micro-mill specializes in the processed coffee in the manner of “white honey,” or “miel.” Approximately 20% of the coffee cherry fruit remains on the bean prior to sun-drying on patios.
This is our second coffee from Luis Alberto Monge and the La Lia micro-mill.
