Lorena Jimenez Catuai Washed
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.
This catuai is a lovely sweet and smooth, easy-drinking coffee. Elegant in its character, whilst having a creamy mouthfeel, and finishing with light orange and lemon citrus notes.
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.
