“La Minita has long been considered by many experts to be one of the world's most exquisite coffees. It is one of the last true Estate coffees, meaning they oversee and control every aspect of the coffee preparation, from nursery through final milling. The La Minita estate spans some 1,200 acres of the richest, most biologically diverse farm land in the Tarrazu river valley of Costa Rica. Only about twenty percent of the coffee harvested will ultimately become La Minita coffee. A rigorous quality control means only the best beans bear the “La Minita” trademark. 


After being harvested by hand and mechanically milled, La Minita is sundried creating a softer, more mellow taste. Additionally, La Minita coffee is “cured” for sixty days before final prepping for export instead of the standard thirty. Even after all of this, the coffee is then hand sorted, removing any remaining defects that could adversely affect the flavor. Sorters will work only for a couple of hours at a time, taking several breaks to ensure only the very best beans become La Minita.”
