Costa Rica Hacienda Miramonte – Microlot Blend

Costa Rica Hacienda Miramonte

We are excited to introduce a really special blend of coffees from Costa Rica’s Hacienda Miramonte. Reserved exclusively for Zingerman’s Coffee Company, this lot is the result of many years of collaboration between Zingerman’s Coffee Company and the farm.  

Most beans from Costa Rica are processed using a “washed” method that uses water to remove the coffee fruit from the bean inside.  What gives this single-estate blend a particularly interesting flavor is the inclusion of one “naturally” processed coffee — meaning the beans were dried out with the fruit still attached.  Naturally processed coffees are known for having amazing natural sweetness and a rich, velvety body. And we definitely taste those characteristics here!

Managing Partner Steve Mangigian worked closely with the folks at the farm to bring this coffee to market and oversaw processing, milling, and final sorting.

Hacienda Miramonte was started in 1917 by the matriarch of the Guardian family, Lucila Duval de Morales, and is now operated by her great-grandson Ricardo.  Generation after generation, the Guardians have reaffirmed their commitment to growing quality coffee while serving as stewards of the environment and their local community.

  • Wonderfully balanced with flavors of caramel & citrus
  • Really nice and distinctive in a number of brewing methods: The pour over gave a balanced, sweet cup. The press pot was smooth and buttery with a nutty note. And the syphon was very rich and complex with a nice toffee-like note.
