This coffee was processed at Jorge Vasquéz Ureña’s Roble Negro micromill in the town of Aserrí in Costa Rica’s Tarrazú region. The micromill partners with local coffee growers like Ana Lorena Jiménez Castro to produce quality, traceable lots and to help facilitate access to international markets.

Lorena Jimenez Washed is such a nice representation of a round and sweet coffee for us. Balanced and crowd-pleasing, we really think this is coffee everyone can enjoy! In the cup we experience flavour of orange and caramel, an elegant character and a light floral finish. Our head of coffee Blazej has now had the chance to visit Roble Negro and Lorena Jimenez twice, and we are so impressed with the attention to detail which really shines through in the character of her coffees.

Coffee producer Ana Lorena Jiménez Castro operates Finca El Zapote and Finca El Cristóbal in Tarbaca, Aserrí, in the Tarrazú region of Costa Rica. Lorena purchased Finca El Zapote in 2019, initially working alone and planting Red Catuai and Caturra plants. She quickly expanded production, adding Yellow Catuai and Gesha varieties with the help of her son, Christopher. After working together through the 2020 season, the two would go on to acquire Finca El Cristóbal.

As a producer, Lorena aspires to be recognized for the high quality of her specialty coffee. To achieve this, she works as sustainably as possible using no herbicides and only calcium sulfate as a natural fungicide for her plants. Currently, Lorena processes all of her coffee at the Roble Negro mill.

We have decided to roast this coffee omni, which mean it can be enjoyed equally as both espresso and filter brews.
