Costa Rica Finca Olman Vargas Black Honey GrainPro is sourced from a family-owned farm located in the canton of San Ramon within the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica. The 22-acre farm is owned and managed by Olman Vargas. Olman uses his own micro-mill where cherry selection, depulping, and drying are meticulously executed. This honey processed coffee is an example of precisely executed methods of drying coffee while the mucilage remains attached to the bean, which reduces water consumption by eliminating the need to wash the mucilage from the bean. The process reduces the environmental impact, and at the same time, preserves an expressive cup profile.
