So let us talk a bit about this particular farm, Cerro Los Vindas, in Palmichal, the district of San Jose.
It’s owned and operated by three brothers, Eduardo, Leonel and Gerardo Vindas who bought the hectares from a rancher in 1967. They continued to make cheese and milk for the 1500 inhabitants of Palmichal for the first two years and then began to cultivate some coffee seedlings on the steep slopes of the Tacuotarí mountains which was an active volcano. No one dared before to grow anything on the sides of this volcano, but the Vindas brothers were convinced that the volcanic soil would be great for the production of coffee. This is because it received a gentle amount of wind from the pacific ocean and the relatively dry climate. They were right about their theories and were obviously successful and luckily enough for me and you we get to consume this coffee . And that’s what we’re going to do right now
You’ll experience flavours of nutty sweetness with toffee. This coffee has a decent citric acidity with a juicy and velvety body and flavours of berries.
