This stunning Jaguar "Nectar" process coffee is produced in Santa Maria, Dota, one of the three true Tarrazu geographical origins.
Nectar coffee is often confused with "Honey Process", which usually employs sun drying with the coffee fruit left on the seed. But "Nectar" is created by using only farmer-picked peak ripe "cherries" in multiple picking sessions as the fruit ripens, then partially washing the fruit in a portable coffee milling nachine, leaving some of the pulp on to dry in "sky tunnels", wooden beds out in the wonderful bright sun at 6000' altitude. This farmer supports the preservation of the indigenous Costa Rica Jaguar, who migrates from the lower to the higher altitudes of the "cloud forest" along the mountain ridges of the region.
Donations are given to the Jaguar Program, which is a research project attached to the International Institute for Wildlife Conservation and Management (ICOMVIS) program of the Universidad Nacional (UNA) of Costa Rica.
Notes: Chocolate, butter, caramel.
