    About this coffee

    Our Candelilla Espresso grew on the same-named farm. Candelilla is the colloquial word for fireflies that the residents of the San Marcos region in Terrazù use. On warm summer nights the glowing creatures buzz around nearby streams and take adventurous flights between the coffee plants, leaving something magical behind. We don’t know if that’s the reason why our coffee is so special, what we know is that our coffee is outstanding (trust us, we know what we are talking about, we’ve tasted, tested and roasted it after all). Fortunately, we couldn’t taste any traces of firefly but lovely milk chocolate, yellow plum and sweet cane sugar.

    The Candelilla Estate is 28 hectares in size and grows varieties such as Caturra and Catuaì. Only 2% of their plants are the Typica variety which you’ll find in this coffee. The small number of plants in a micro-mill enables precise quality control. The Sanchez family grows their coffee at 1750m above sea level since the late nineties and is always eager to experiment with new processing methods. The family was one of the first in Costa Rica to introduce African drying beds to their farm and work with micro-mills. To bring the best out of our beans the Sanchez family used the washed method. After being pulped and washed the beans were spread out on drying beds before going on their journey to our roastery where Anthony roasts them to perfection.
