  • The Producers

    Harvested from Finca Parritllia, in the highly prized Tarrazu region, this coffee has been grown and processed by William Mora Merno.   His farm was named after the town where it was located 'Finca Parritilla'

    Finca Paritilla was purchased by the Mereno family 35 years ago.  Originally the farm was planted with other crops, however today, coffee production accounts for 20% of the hectare farm.    

    The Co-op

    ASOPROAAA was born as a result of the devastating consequence of Hurricane Mitch in 1998, which wiped out the agricultural systems in Costa Rica.  This coop was formed to help get coffee producers back into production.  Today, the coop has over 1000 members and is internationally recognized as a world-renowned coffee producer.     

     

    What is honey process?

    Honey processed coffees are a true specialty coffee, even before being expertly roasted. the green beans present sweet, fruity undertones, and balanced acidity with depth, depending on which honey process is used. The coffee cherry is peeled after being picked, but the fruit remains on the coffee beans.  Depending on weather conditions, it can take 7-14 days for the fruit to dehydrate off the coffee bean, whilst sitting on sun-drenched patios.  Since the bean is absorbing sugars during this time the coffee is typically full-bodied, complex, and naturally sweet.  Yellow Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee turned hourly on the bed.

     

    Red Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee several times a day on the bed (less frequently than Yellow Honey) 

    Black Honey: 100% mucilage left on, coffee turned only once per day 

    Perla Negra: Natural process, coffee is turned normally on raised beds 

    Alma Negra: Natural process, coffee turned only a few times a day on raised beds.
