About the Coffee
From day one, Luis Fernando Prado has focused his efforts on finding new ways to improve his farming techniques. As a relatively new coffee producer with four years of growing experience, he is eager to invest in whatever it takes to grow high-quality coffee on his farm in the Cedral area in Tarrazú. That is why one hundred percent of the coffee Luis produces is sun-dried on raised African beds and patios after it is milled in the Cerro Dragon micro mill.

In the case of this micro-lot, great care was taken to cultivate the delicate Geisha trees. Nevertheless, the high prices that Geisha coffees fetch make the effort worthwhile for many farmers. Roasters can look forward to a beautifully complex cup profile that includes sweet, sugary notes of strawberry, grape, and tropical fruits.

Tarrazú has distinguished itself over the years as a high-quality coffee region in Costa Rica, and nearly 95% of the coffee grown here falls under the Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) category reserved for coffee grown above 1,200masl. The volcanic soil, distinct wet and dry seasons, and towering altitudes coalesce into an ideal terroir for outstanding coffee processed with a variety of innovative methods.
