Wrapping up the Costa Rica reports for the year with my visit to Tarrazu!

Wrapping up the Costa Rica reports for the year with my visit to Tarrazu!

The Puente Tarrazu mill is becoming a regular contributor to the Square Mile coffee offer list. The mill is a partnership between 6 local families, led by Rodolfo Rivera, and this year we picked up a lot from their Finca El Sur for Red Brick, as well as a small lot from Rodolfo’s Finca San Martin 1900. Puente Tarrzu mill their own coffees as well as neighbouring ones. When we arrived we ran into Mario from nearby Finca Los Quarteles who was there doing some hulling of his 1800 masl honeys. Using a small mechanical huller and with some help from his son Jose Mario, he was mixing leftover dry parchment chips from the procesing of Puente’s white honeys into the sticky clumps of his own honeys, in order to reduce the stickyness of the mass and allow it to pass through the huller more easily.
