EXCLUSIVE to the Extract Coffee Roastery, this honey processed Cafetalera Zamorana Estate Coffee is picked when perfectly ripe, then pulped and dried on patios with the mucilage still attached. This ‘honey process’ tends to produce a sweeter, fruitier cup.

Zamorana Estate, 1350 metres
Caturra and Catuaí, HONEY PROCESSED (European exclusive to Extract Coffee Roasters)
The Zamora family has been growing coffee at the Cafatalera Zamorana Estate for over 100 years and four generations. Jorge Zamora is now in charge of the family business, which he runs with the help of his five sons.
The estate is made up of some ten small farms dotted around the foot of Costa Rica’s central volcanic mountain range. The fertile, volcanic soils and mild mountain climate provide ideal conditions for the production of specialty coffee. Two varietals are grown on the estate – Caturra and Catuaí.
The Zamora family do their utmost to farm in an environmentally sustainable manner. The solid coffee pulp left over at the end of the process is recycled and used as organic fertiliser on the estate, while the waste water is filtered naturally in purification lagoons in order to keep the farm’s streams and rivers pollution free.
In the Cup: Sticky sweet golden syrup-backed up with ripe fleshy fruit notes
