Costa Rica La Minita 2014 has arrived!
La Minita has long been considered by many experts to be one of the world’s most exquisite coffees. It is one of the last true Estate coffees, as the staff oversees and controls every aspect of the coffee preparation, from nursery through final milling. La Minita has brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long satisfying finish.
The Kaffeeklatsch has proudly offered La Minita coffee since the owner, Bill McAlpin, first introduced his coffee to us in 1989. We are one of a small number of roasters in the U. S. who were selected to receive this outstanding hand-sorted coffee from Costa Rica.
The world coffee market has been unstable recently. The drought in Brazil in the spring and the coffee leaf rust in Central America are contributing factors. More recently more dry weather in Brazil has caused coffee prices to remain high.
