Costa Rica Tarrazu La Minita Estate

Peak Roast


This is one of the most prized and sought after coffees in the world. The cup is perfectly balanced and simply elegant. The brew has a sweet aroma, medium- to full-body, great acidity, and a delicate, clean aftertaste.


What’s the story?

Hacienda La Minita is a plantation consisting of about 283 hectares (700 acres). The title “La Minita” is given to the premium product of this estate—only 30% of their highest grade beans make the cut. As an estate (as opposed to a co-op) this coffee cannot be certified as Fair Trade. However, workers here receive pay that is 30% higher than the national average. They are offered pension plans, loans, and free onsite healthcare from the estate. No pesticides or herbicides are used in production. This is one of the most prized and sought after coffees in the world.
