This coffee will leave your mouth watering with it's juicy citrus tones, layered with caramel and sweetness.
Sumava is a pretty amazing story in the coffee world. This is the third season under new management and we were lucky enough to see it each year in that transformation. A friend of ours in Costa Rica, Francisco Mena, is the proprietor of Sumava and oversees operations. Each year we've been to Costa Rica to visit and tour other farms and mills, we've stopped in for a visit to Sumava to see the upgrades. It's one of the most organized coffee operations we've set foot on.
In 2016, Sumava won the Costa Rica Cup of Excellence which is an incredibly prestigious award. The coffee they submitted to the competition was an incredibly rare species of coffee called Ethiopia H3 - which is not what we're featuring on our menu. Rather, we're featuring a Caturra species which is juicy, citric and sweet. We feel it's a fantastic single origin espresso offering.
Next season, Sumava has thousands of Villa Sarchi trees that will be coming into maturity, so you can possibly expect a feature on our menu. Villa Sarchi is a species of coffee that is a genetic mutation of Bourbon, and originates to the town of Sarchi, just a handful of kilometers away.
