Finca El Roble is located in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. The farm is run by Luis Fernando, his wife Maria Emilia, their son Luis, and daughters Paola and Karolina. This lot was processed as a honey coffee or pulped natural in which the coffee cherry is depulped and sent straight to a drying patio or raised bed, omitting the washing and fermentation that commonly occurs with fully washed coffees. El Roble coffee took 3rd place in the 2012 Costa Rican Cup of Excellence competition, recognizing the family as high quality Costa Rican coffee producers. We found this coffee to be intensely bright and floral with notes of lime, berry, an assortment of baking spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove), and a nutty, chocolate finish.
We're extremely excited to have this coffee and hope that you're just as excited to try some! Bags can be purchased here and also at our cafe / roastery in downtown Winston-Salem.
In celebration of coffee farmers worldwide, it is our pleasure to announce that we will be roasting and serving coffee from Gabriel Garcia Romero and Finca Tres Tetas, one of the winners of the 2013 Mexico Cup of Excellence.
Cup of Excellence is the most prestigious award given to a fine quality coffee. The level of scrutiny that Cup of Excellence coffees undergo is unmatched anywhere in the coffee industry. All of the Cup of Excellence award winners are cupped at least 5 times (the 'Top 10' are cupped again) during the 3-week competition. During this selection process thousands of cups are evaluated, tasted and scored based on their exemplary characteristics. The prices that these winning coffees receive at auction have broken records and proven that there is a huge demand for these rare, farmer identified coffees.

This is Krankies first time offering a Cup of Excellence winning coffee and we're super excited to share it with you. The cup itself is sweet and extremely well balanced with bursts of citrus, butterscotch, sweet caramel, and apple juice.
This coffee can be purchased here online and will be served at our cafe / roastery in downtown Winston-Salem, NC.
