Daniel Monge Geisha Washed
Coffee producer Daniel Monge operates Finca Las Palomas in Tarbaca, Aserrí, Costa Rica as the third generation of coffee workers in his family. Daniel’s father, Jorge Monge, purchased Finca Las Palomas in the early-1990s and ever since then the Monge García family has worked to produce a range of coffee varieties on the property. Initially, the family planted Red and Yellow Catuai, but through the years they’ve expanded production to include lots like this beautiful Geisha.
As a producer, Daniel’s main goal is to carry on the family tradition and to continue improving his production each year. Currently, Daniel processes all of his coffee at the Roble Negro wet mill, operated by our long-time collaborator Jorge Vasquez.
You may remember that we introduced Daniel’s geisha for the first time last year, and this year, he has really ramped up production, both in terms of quality and quantity. Intense in flavour, we experience a very clean coffee, with perfume notes, lots of citrus, stone fruit and florals. Really exciting to experience these amazing coffees!
We have decided to roast this lot omni, which means that it can be enjoyed equally as both filter and espresso.
