THIS COFFEE WAS SOURCED WITH CAFE IMPORTS
Café Imports bought its first Costa Rica microlot container at the end of the 2006/2007 harvest; at that time, microlot offerings were basically nonexistent. In six years, the Costa Rican microlot market has grown, and now Costa Rica is one of the most popular origins, delivering very consistent quality year after year.
The Costas Café Imports is carrying are all sourced directly from micromills, and producers were paid at the farm-gate level. We managed local transportation, dry-milling, consolidation, and exportation of the coffees. This experience is extremely valuable, as it gives us a better understanding of what it takes to get coffee from cherry to export quality in GrainPro and jute with its corresponding marks.
Rio Jorco’s owners are third-generation in the business. They are extremely focused on quality and conservation of nature. Los Lobos won Cup of Excellence #3 in 2012, and the owners have dedicated 3/4ths of the land to a private reserve. Rio Jorco is equipped with a complete wet- and dry-mill operation, which allows quality control throughout the process. They process coffee from their own farm, Los Lobos, but also purchase cherry from producers from the area. Producers are compensated based on cup quality, and get recognition for selling a microlot.
Rio Jorco’s operations area is in the municipalities of Aserri, Acosta, Leon Cortez, Frailes, Desamparados, and Corralillo. These microregions of Tarrazu have won multiple Cup of Excellence awards, year after year.
Café Imports is excited to bring you, once again, high-quality and traceable microlots from Costa Rica.
