Costa Rica Hacienda Colima Microlot Coffee

The Hacienda Colima is a natural microlot that is one of our more unusual coffees. The coffee convinces us as a filter and espresso with a wonderfully milk chocolate body accompanied by notes of caramel and pineapple. For a natural, the coffee is very clean and has a subtle acidity.

Alejo Castro Kahle is the fifth generation to grow coffee in the Vallée Centrale region in Costa Rica. He particularly enjoys experimenting with different varieties and types of preparation. He separates his harvest according to lots and so we were able to get hold of something from this special micro lot.

Our coffee grows on volcanic soil at an altitude of 1,400 - 1,500 masl. The Kahle family is one of the first families to set up a coffee business in South America. They started in the Chiapas region in Mexico, and the family then spread over several countries in Central America. Since they explain the exceptional quality of their coffee with the biodiversity in the region, the preservation of nature is particularly important to them. There is a 200 hectare forest above our microlot that will not be touched. Alejo also owns 1,500 hectares of primary rainforest in southern Costa Rica (in the Osa Peninsula) to protect nature here too.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
