Description

Costa Rica is renowned for its honey processed coffees, and this coffee is a prime example of the distinct, delicious flavours this processing can achieve. A complex combo of crisp and smooth flavours, it tastes just like those cola bottle sweets we all know from our childhood, super sweet with a pleasant tang in the aftertaste. Clean red apple notes cut through the smooth caramel flavour that rounds out this delightful coffee.

Made up of 12 brothers and sisters (hermanos literally translates as brothers but in Spanish actually denotes mixed male and female siblings), the Hermanos Aguileras of Finca Chayote are the second-generation of their family to produce coffee in the West Valley. Their father was one of the first coffee growers in the area, and planted his farm 70 years ago. Despite their neighbours saying coffee would not grow there, the area is now rich with coffee lands. Most of the siblings own farmland and co-manage their micro-mill, which they installed with the earnings from their fourth-place Cup of Excellence win in 2007.

Before they had the mill, the family was selling its coffee to a local cooperative and did not have any connection with the roasters who bought the lots. Now that they handle their own processing and selling, they can get immediate feedback from their trading partners that help them plan improvements for the next year’s crop. They even have a nursery in which they are growing many different varieties, including Gesha and SL-28, as well as Bourbon and Villa Sarchi, with which to expand their offering. With the region’s susceptibility to the disease of coffee leaf rust, such efforts are also important for achieving a balance between high quality and rust-resistant coffee varieties.

ABOUT The Roaster

Maude Coffee are a speciality micro roaster operating from our base under the railway lines of Leeds. We’re a small team of passionate individuals who all care deeply about showing the breadth and depth of coffee’s potential, both as a diverse, tasty product for your enjoyment first thing in the morning and as a sustainable livelihood for the farmer.

To that end, we aim to use only coffee that is highly traceable back to the grower, be it an estate, farm or microlot. This way we ensure an at all points ethical supply chain and know that those working to produce such good coffee are paid what they deserve and are rewarded with recognition for their efforts. We want the farmers we showcase to not just survive but thrive.

We exclusively offer single origin coffees, working very closely to the seasons of the coffee-growing world to ensure we buy and roast only the most freshly harvested green beans and produce the most flavoursome coffee that bean has the potential to be.
