Aromas of butterscotch, blood orange, and tarragon introduce this silky and dynamic coffee. Its bright kumquat acidity is grounded by a deep créme brûlèe sweetness. We found notes of guava, milk chocolate, golden raspberry, and lavender. Notes of berry jam and caramel cookie make for a sweet finish.

Available whole bean in an 8oz or 4oz bag. This coffee roasts and ships on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. Please scroll down for more details.

This lot is from two separate "gardens" of SL28, spanning between 1,650 and 1,800 meters above sea level.

Finca Santa Ana has set aside 5.4 hectares of its land as a forest reserve. From this area, rainwater is collected throughout the year as a reserve supply for harvest season. Finca Santa Ana composts the unused pulp from coffee cherries to be used as fertilizer on the trees in the coming year.

Finca Santa Ana is a longtime Direct Trade partner of our sister company, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. The farm has had multiple Cup of Excellence appearances, including #4 in 2010 and #16 in 2015. The carefully supervised quality control at the farm is evident in the cup.

Finca Santa Ana has partnered with local organizations to invest in the community of Pueblo Nuevo de Viñas, including improving the fiscal infrastructure of the pre-school, elementary school, and the county health center building and maternity room. The farm also provides a "coffee Kindergarten" during harvest season—a certified day care dedicated to the children of the temporary employees on the farm.

As part of our Direct Trade buying philosophy at PT's and Bird Rock, we always look for ways to invest in our farming partners in addition to paying a good price for the coffee. In 2015 Bird Rock shared an investment with Fernando to plant new seed stock at the farm with about 15 new varietals, including Mokka and Gesha. In a few years, these shrubs will give Finca Santa Ana more varietals to sell to specialty roasters and add another dimension to this already great farm.
