Blue Zone Cerro Negro Anaerobic / Matambu

Whiskey flavors, cacao, cardamon, chocolate with fruity berry notes and citric acidity

“Cerro Negro is located in the famous Blue Zone of Costa Rica. That means people here are more than twice as likely as elsewhere to reach a helathy age of at least 90 and frequently live to be over 100 years old. Costa Rica´s Blue Zone in the peninsula Nicoya is the only one with production of specialty coffee in the world, given its great exclusivity.

This coffee is a sustainable or environmentally responsible coffee, it is led by the Nama Café Program of Costa Rica, the first Nama Agrícola initiative in the world that seeks to reduce the carbon footprint, under production in agroforestry systems. (also important to note that it is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable and fair trade). It is a coffee that seeks to improve the living conditions of the families of 192 producers associated with Coopepilangosta RL, which generates a social impact on the economic issue in the rural communities of the Nicoya Peninsula.”

The process of this coffee is carried out starting with the collection of the best beans in fruit which go through meticulous quality controls, a controlled alcoholic fermentation of black honey beans and a slow drying in the sun that allows an really exceptional cup.

This cup has citrus acidity, juicy and creamy body, notes of cranberries, grapefruit, sweet lemon, blackberries, cardamom liqueur, cacao, chocolate and spices.
