Hacienda La Pradera is a 181 hectare coffee farm in the heart of the Tarrazú region at 1,550 meters above sea level. The bulk of our harvest is from the caturra variety which is well suited to the soil and climate of the area. The cup is bright and sweet with medium heavy body, and contains flavor notes of citrus, maple, caramel, and bittersweet cocoa.
Since 2012 we have also been planting and nurturing multiple other coffee varieties at La Pradera. We are studying the health and yields of each variety to determine the best commercialization of the area. We harvest, depulp, and process each variety separately, and cup each lot individually to determine ultimate quality and inform our direction for the future. We also experiment with processing by variety, to taste the impact of each different method and level of mucilage removal and observe which processes perform better for each variety.
Experimental varieties include: Hybrido de Tico, Paca, Pacamara, Castillo, Bourbon, Bourbon Tekisic, and Geisha.
