Costa Rica, Green Coffee
MICEPA (short for Microbeneficio Cerro Paraguas) is a community mill located in Chirripo Costa Rica. Chirripo has only recently started to produce coffee in any volume and now there are dozens of micro-mills popping up and farmers are buying more and more land to keep up with the demand for these truly wonderful coffees.
8 families contribute to make MICEPA run, and in total they operate about 15 farms (I say about because that number always seems to go up). Rigoberto and José are in charge of the mill and their milling and drying are tightly controlled, which is what really stood out to us on the cupping table when we tried their coffees for the first time. Not being as highly grown as many of the other coffees we purchase, the flavour profile is more in the caramel, milk chocolate and praline range, with very mellow acidity but a wonderful sweetness. This is the kind of coffee you could drink all day every day, and that only happens when the coffee is obsessively cared for from start to finish.
