The coffee is from Los Manantiales, near San Jose, Costa Rica. The producer Esnider Rodriguez and the processor Esteban Villalobos from Cafe de Altura. These gentlemen this year managed to create Esnider’s beautiful, precious SL28processed in the natural anaerobic environment. The signature of Esteban is the note of cinnamon, El Diamante, which is a total magic of local bacterias being together with coffee cherries in tanks, without adding the actual cinnamon sticks. These local bacterias are spicy when they meet coffee cherries, especially when they are from Tarrazu. Esteban masters the perfect combination of the bacterias over the years. His recipe of this bacterias combination is the secret of the pungent, yet elegant cinnamon note.
Together with SL28 this time, the coffee is even more complex - the brewed coffee gets you notes of cinnamon, then red apple, raisin, cognac.
