HEAVY BAG ESPRESSO
Here at the roastery, this is our go-to coffee for a nice creamy espresso, or a deliciously balanced flat white. You know you’ve brewed it well when its distinctively sweet marzipan notes come out singing. Due it’s bold flavours and sparkly acidity, it’s really easy to get great results, and works great with a Moka pot or cafetière as well.

The coffee harvest takes place between November and March. Only the mature cherries are picked to ensure the best possible cup quality. The harvest is carried out and transported on the same day to the cooperative wet mill.
The centralization of the wet mill reduces the impact on the environment, through a more efficient use of water and better management of coffee by-products (pulp and honey waters).
The Don Claudio coffee is picked in the area of La Piedra De Rivas and for this particular lot only the ripe cherries are picked during the central part of the harvest. The main varieties are Caturra and Red Catuai, along with some heirloom varieties. The cherries are all processed in the Beficio Coopeagri.
The Beneficio Coopeagri processes more than half of the production of Perez Zeledon and all the beans are washed with rain water, to make the mill as environmentally friendly as possible.
