This coffee has a really pleasant velvet-like tactile sensation and chocolate note, that reminds us a lot of a cold chocolate milk. The lower, creamy tones are complimented with easy plum and red apple-type sweetness. This is a balanced, smooth and coating coffee.

Sumava de Lourdes is a Cup of Excellence winning farm based in the West Valley of Costa Rica. It's owned by Francisco Meña who has been an integral figure in the success of Costa Rica's specialty coffee production. He is the owner of Exclusive Coffees, an exporting group in Costa Rica.

Since 2015, we've visited Sumava and been able to see it's growth and development first hand. In 2015, they had a small depulper where they were doing their honey coffees, now they have a sophisticated wet mill, with a capacity to handle both farms within the umbrella of Sumava de Lourdes, 'Llano Bonito' and 'Monte Lourdes'.

Llano Bonito is an eastern slope focused on the production of Villasarchi.

Monte Lourdes is a western and southern slope where you'll find the the micro mill, Sumava de Lourdes, the nursery filled with fascinating coffee genetics as well as some production of more exotic varieties.

In 2016, Sumava won the Costa Rica Cup of Excellence, an incredibly prestigious award. The coffee they submitted to the competition was an incredibly rare coffee cultivar called Ethiopia H3.

A honey processed coffee is pulped, meaning the cherry is spliced open and the mucilage inside is exposed. Rather than cleaning it all off the seeds using water to rinse, the coffee is brought to dry covered in this mucilage. This will lead to increased sweetness with jammy or honey-like body.

For this White honey process, approximately twenty percent 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).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
