Costa Rica Tarrazu La Loma Gold Label | Wholesale
In my opinion, Costa Rican coffees have some of the best flavor profiles in Central America. When I tasted this wet-processed bean for the first time I was amazed at how juicy and sweet it tasted. Along with the citrusy brightness and nutty notes I often desire from a Costa Rican bean, this coffee has a smooth, caramelly richness that pushes through with each sip.

La Loma Coffee Production / Farm:
This coffee is from the Bonilla family's 'Don Mayo' micro mill. This is truly one of the oldest of the micro mills, starting back in 2003, and Hector Bonilla has worked at perfecting production at the facility along with his sons. This particular lot is from La Loma, a farm in Leon Cortes de Tarrazu, also a previous "top 3" coffee at Costa Rica COE. La Loma sits between 1750 and 1875 meters, and planted almost entirely in Caturra cultivar. They use a Penagos for mechanically-washing at the station (a version of pulp-natural that closely replicates actual 'wet processing'), efficient water conserving machine, dry parchment on raised beds, and then do all the dry milling themselves. That's part of the beauty of Familia Bonilla/Don Mayo mill, is their ability to oversee the coffee processing from the time it is harvested to the milled green coffee. Like many of the micro-mills, Don Mayo processes coffee from their own farms, as well as buys whole cherry from local farmers to sell as individual micro-lots.
As a wholesale customer, you are ordering substantially more than the average coffee lover. This means that ensuring the correct grind level is even more important for you, but there's no need to worry. We're here to help! In addition to whole coffee beans, we currently offer 4 different coffee grind levels. Listed below with descriptions.
Whole Bean: Unground coffee for a home grinder.
Coarse: Think sugar in the raw, maybe more coarse
Recommended for Chemex Brewer, French Press, Cold Brew
Medium: Slightly coarser than table salt
Recommended for Flat bottom brewers, Kalitta, and Cloth filters
Fine: Slightly finer than table salt
Recommended for V60 pour overs, Typical cone filter coffee pots, Aeropress.
Extra Fine: Like powdered sugar
Recommended for Espresso or Moka pot.
If at all possible, we recommend grinding at home. We prefer Baratza coffee grinders and offer several of their models for sale. Click here to shop for one of their brewers.
We roast and ship all of our coffees daily. Unlike many roasters, they pick a day for each varietal. We roast in small enough batches to guarantee that every bag of coffee that you order is roasted after you order it, usually the day after you order it. We then ship it that day.
We believe that with this schedule your coffee will be the freshest possible every time.
Due to the hefty batch size of the majority of wholesale orders will be shipped out within 48 hours of when your order was placed. We hope as we grow, we'll still be able to meet these commitments, and we will notify you if anything related to this policy will be changed.
We aim to have a super simple shipping policy. Everything is shipped ground, because frankly Priority or FedEx 2 Day is pretty expensive for heavier shipments and in an ever cost conscious environment, we want you to pay ofr the quality of beans vs. the speed of shipping. That said, we have good negotiated rates and will quote and shipping service you want. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
