The family's history with coffee production Helsar de Zarcero was established in 2004 by Ricardo Perez and a partner, during the nascent stages of Costa Rica's "micro mill revolution". While today Helsar serves a few dozen farms, including a few of the Perez family's own, the operation started with just a depulper and some raised beds. Ricardo & Isabel are third generations coffee farmers and it seems that this tradition will remain firmly intact as Lucía takes on more and more responsibility at Helsar.

This coffee is entirely from Magdalena Vega's farm, which is close to Helsar De Zarcero. It's a white honey processed coffee, where80-90% of the mucilage is removed at the beginning or washing, then the beans are dried on raised beds in the direct sun & dry quickly in the intense heat and the parchment becomes white in colour.

As a result, you'll get clean delicate notes like citrus, apricot & vanilla notes. We always like the Costa Rican coffee that delivers a very comfortable drinking experience. Soft acidity and subtle undertone sweetness. Remarkable!
