NECTARINE / MARMALADE / MILK CHOCOLATE
Sweetness ●●○○○ Acidity ●●●○○ Body ●●●○○
This coffee is sweet, refreshing and filled with juicy stone fruit tones. Its body is jammy reminding us a lot of marmalade, in both flavour and texture. There's a nice milk chocolate backing up the sweet, fruity tones.

Marvin and Felipe Rodriguez are the owners of Anonos Farm. They are also founders of the Helsar de Zarcero micro-mill. This wet-mill was one of the first micro-mills in Costa Rica and is often credited for starting the micro-mill revolution which has become such a differentiator in the Costa Rican coffee industry. With farmers having the ability to operate their own micro-mill for processing and drying, they can acquire a higher price per pound for their coffee as they have a greater investment in infrastructure, time and quality. Not only that, they can experiment and try new innovations and techniques to push the boundaries of flavor within coffee.
This farm was certified organic for years and years until Marvin became fed up with the system in place. After receiving no support from the organic certifications and no yearly visits to ensure the practices were still being followed and met, Marvin decided to leave the certification behind. Now, he still continues to practice organic coffee farming; however, he has called his coffee 'producto limpio' or 'clean product' rather than organic. So it's not certified organic, but rather a new styling labelled as such. For many coffee producers, organic certifications are unreasonably expensive and unattainable due to these economics. This was actually our motivation to create our own internal certifications, and this offering from Anonos is the first Rosso Green to launch.
This is now the fourth season we've visited Helsar de Zarcero; however, it’s just the third year we’ve secured a lot of coffee from here. We've always been very impressed with our visits. The innovation happening here at Helsar is inspiring, and we believe they’re helping push the bounds of specialty coffee.
Helsar will process cherry for farmers who have not had the opportunity to build out their own wet mills, or nearby farmers who have relied on the Perez family for the past decade to process their cherry. Coffees will be pulped and left with some mucilage intact. After, they’ll shift out to patios where they’ll pre-dry for two or three days. Depending on the weather, the Perez family may bypass the pre-drying and instead put the coffee into a mechanical dryer for a single day. From there, the coffees will go out to African style beds which they’ve built out on a tilt – a nice innovation.
Beside the micro-mill, the Perez family has gone and built out something we have never seen before. They believe they may be one of the first in the industry to have their own Cascara processing lab. We weren’t allowed to take any photos inside the lab as it’s still being developed and still remains a bit of a secret. It’s essentially a clean and efficient way to take the coffee cherries – usually used for fertilizers – and turn them into Cascara, or coffee cherry tea.
For this yellow honey process, approximately half of the mucilage is left on with the coffee seeds to dry. No intentional fermentation stage occurs.

We source directly from producers when we can to make sure the most profit gets to the farmer. Our sourcing values are shown through our icons on each of our coffee labels and on the back of our coffee bags.
Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.
Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.

Composting Biotrē Bags
Biotre bags are made 100% from plant based material.
Both the manufacturing and disposing process is better for the environment.
You can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost, which will break down within 12 weeks.
Dispose of the sugar cane lining in the garbage afterward where it will continue to break down.
After 12 weeks, only the inner lining should be left.
