Costa Rica Asoproaaa Cooperative

Cupping notes

Elderflower, Blackberry, peach, passionfruit and caramel feature in this gentle, fruity, black honey processed coffee. A touch softer than last year, it sweetens well as it cools.

Description

The Association of Agricultural Producers of Acosta and AsserĂ­, ASOPROAAA, was established in September 1998, following the devastating destruction in the region by Hurricane Mitch. ASOPROAAA offers financial, commercial and technical assistance to members, and employs dedicated programs to improve the livelihoods of members of the community. More than 2,000 houses were built for people with limited resources as part of a special program initiated by the association.

ASOPROAAA has been influential in the revival of agricultural production in the area following Hurricane Mitch back in 1998, and a pioneer in the processing of micro lots by its members. Lots from ASOPROAAA have won numerous quality awards in addition to regularly placing in the finals of the Cup of Excellence competition.

The black honey lot is a selection from the cooperative, processed and shipped through their facility. This process leaves the largest amount of mucilage on the bean and requires the most time from start to finish. Beans are dried on African beds.
