On the occasion of the Pride Month May, we have created  this special coffee with excellence grade based on this motto united in love.

During 1967, the three Vindas brothers Eduardo, Leonel and Gerardo purchased the first hectares of land from a cattle farmer and continued producing milk and cheese for the 1,500 inhabitants of Palmichal. Two years later, the brothers started to grow the first coffee seedings on the tremendous slopes of the Tacuotari mountains, where nobody else even dared to think of growing coffee on these spectacular slopes, but the Vindas´ convinced that the volcanic soil combined with the smooth, pacific-influenced and relatively dry climate was ideal for coffee growing, continued to grow Caturra and Catuaí plants protecting the crystaline rivers and preventing the mountain borders from erosion.
Palmichal features some of Costa Rica´s best coffees. The name ´calidad Palmichal´ is a designation of prestige, much as that of nearby Tarrazú and has spent the last 100 years refining its processes in a micro mill for small batches of specialty coffee.

For this coffee the Anaerobic Fermentation Process has been used: The ripe and handpicked red beans are delivered to Palmichal micro mill, where it`s pulped and then graded by density using water channels and screen sieves. The coffee is then moved to fermentation tanks for 24 hours and afterwards washed with clean mountain water. Finally the coffee is dried in drum driers at low temperatures and stored in parchment in special silos, to preserve its characteristics The coffee is hulled and sorted only just before shipment.

The cup profile can be characterized with notes of dark fruits, blackberry, dried prune, vanilla, caramel and lemongrass. The cup has an overall sweetness and also a sweet aftertaste, slightly like cane sugar.
