Sumava de Lourdes is a passion project for Francisco Mena of Exclusive Coffees in Costa Rica. After years as a coffee quality control manager and exporter, he was granted the opportunity to manage a gorgeous plot of land in the coffee-heavy West Valley. The result is Sumava de Lourdes, a sprawling farm and micro-mill named after a famous national park in the Czech Republic. Francisco has split the land into two plots: Finca Monte Lourdes and Finca Llano Bonito. Monte Lourdes is home to the mill and to several smaller lots of exotic varieties of coffee while Monte Llano Bonito houses exclusively the classic Costa Rican Villa Sarchi variety. This lot of coffee comes from Monte Llano Bonito and is 100% Villa Sarchi, which has been processed as Cherry Reposado. During this processing method, the cherries are rested for a few days after being picked before being washed. This method of resting the cherries prior to processing results in a complex coffee with a clean bright acidity and fruity flavour profile.
