Costa Rica – Hacienda Tobosi (FILTER ROAST)


Tasting Notes – Upfront tropical fruits, moving into silky smooth honey that coats the mouth. Finishing with a soft dried Apricot acidity.

Roasters thoughts: “Costa Rican coffees are beginning to be a highlight of our year when it comes to fresh crops. When we were selecting this coffee, this cup was just screaming out at us with flavour! Not to mention the pedigree of this particular farm, they have a serious trophy cabinet!”


Finca Tobosi and Finca Copey de Dota were grouped together under the name “Hacienda Tobosi” to share a recognizable name on the international specialty market.
Tobosi previously was a plantation of ornamentals, and Finca de Copey was a paddock and wild forest. When coffee was first considered as a crop, the different areas of the farms were carefully analyzed in order to determine which variety would thrive in different conditions. As a result the land was clearly divided into different plots.

The farms are managed with friendly cultural practices and quality controls based on environmental protection. Each lot has its soil and foliar analysis to define which nutrient is what it needs for the optimal development of the grain and the plant. A forest nursery was also created to provide the farms with shade, trees of Cuajiniquil (Inga sapindoides.), Arrayan (Weinmannia fagaroides), Manzanita or Australian cherry (Syzygium paniculata), Candelillo (Senna spectabilis) and Poro (Erythrina poeppigiana) were planted.



The coffee cherries are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness, thus ensuring they have the best possible sweetness and flavour prior processing.

After being sorted in a floatation tank, the cherries are very slowly dried for 30 to 35 days on African raised beds.

Wow, magic!

This was my introduction to pour over style coffee, and wow, what a way to do it. Tropical fruit driven and still has some body which I wasn't expecting with this brewing method. Not sure what the more "normal" (non special/award winning) roasts will be like after I've experienced this!
