AGUILERA BROS, LICHO // COSTA RICA
This variant is currently sold out
The Aguilera family have been producing top quality coffee in Costa Rica for over a decade. This farm ‘Licho’ is one of their oldest - some 80 years young. We’re basically roasting coffee royalty.Producers: Aguilera Family
The Aguileras are 12 brothers and sisters, all of whom are involved in coffee as inherited from their parents. The brothers work the mill and farms themselves with basically no hired labor, other than pickers during the harvest. With the help of the third generation, they work the mill and drying patios, prune the coffee fields, fertilize, etc, year round.
When they bought Licho they replanted the farm with the new Villa Sarchi and SL-28 varietals. Villa Sarchi is native to the area and became very popular due to its large yield and high cup score. This, combined with their steadfast passion for controlled processing has yielded a truly delicious coffee. Brew carefully and enjoy a berry complexity similar to your favourite Pinot Noir. Yum yum.
