DESCRIPTION

After graduating from university in 1984, Don Luis Eduardo Campos purchased some land in Piedades del Sur, Alajuela where he began planting coffee. His fascination with pursuing new and innovative ways to produce and process coffee quickly became an obsession.

The exceptional flavours derived from Don Luis’ micro-lots come not only from his unique processing methods but also from his meticulous attention to detail.

We’ve purchased two lots from Luis this season that have undergone two types of fermentation. This coffee was processed using an anaerobic fermentation method. First, the coffee is de-pulped and put into stainless steel tanks with its mucilage, which, in the absence of oxygen, purposely creates an anaerobic fermentation process. The process develops a unique series of acids such as lactic and malic which translates to a very complex flavour. Once ready, the coffee is then 100% sun-dried.
