    Imperio Rojo is a mill we've been working with for the last four years. It's owned and operated by a husband and wife combo name Jose and Annie Alvarado. They're located in a beautiful area of Costa Rica called Chirripo and have land on their farm that spans up to 2100 metres. They're growing Catuai and Caturra and that's what makes up this particular offering.

    Chirripo is a relatively new player when it comes to Costa Rican coffee producing areas. With production stretching back over the past few years, we are thrilled to be offering such a fantastic coffee in such an up and coming region. The views are amazing from the 2000m hills that are covered in coffee!

    Jose owns and operates his Imperio Rojo. It's here that he does all of his processing with a meticulous degree of detail. He and his wife live at the mill, in an absolutely beautiful landscape.

    --- 

    ASOTBILBAO is a cooperative association of 44 members. Annually they receive workshops and training to help them improve the management of resources, and how important it is to keep track of data so they can better plan for the future.

    The members farms are medium sized, with 4.5 hectares being the average. All of them within the municipality Planadas. With high elevations of 1600 meters and above, these areas are ideal for coffee production, especially high-quality Colombia and Castillo.

    On its own, this washed processed coffee is sweet, like a warmed honey or a brown sugar simple syrup. It's nicely balanced, with a medium acidity backing up that sweetness and giving structure. There's some soft citrus tones that compliment the flavours of Two Wheel and make for a nice blend.
