La Toboba Natural

La Toboba Farm has an area of 8 hectares, and it was inherited from Senel’s grandmother to his father. Senel’s father (also named Senel), planted his first coffee trees in 1968 and was always able to maintain his family with the earnings from coffee production. In 2016 La Toboba built its own micro-mill. Toboba in Spanish is the name of a type of Snake that is abundant at the farm, therefore the farm was name La Toboba. These snakes are not dangerous, and it is common to find between 10 to 20 every harvest. They are always relocated to the forest located adjacent to the farm. After picking the cherries they enter the mill where they are rinsed with clean water and afterwards, they go through floater Separation tank to separate unripe's from the lot. African beds are used to dry the coffee parchment for 3 to 5 days depending on the intensity of the sun. The coffee is taken to a greenhouse afterwards where it is piled up and moved every 6 hours, then piled up again, to create a very slow dry. This process can take up to 35 days. After drying it rests for 2 – 3 months. Before it is dry milled and sorted.


Roaster's Thoughts

Coffees from Costa Rica are usually quite diverse, but usually well-known for its lively acidity, lighter body, and smooth, sweet, floral flavours. This coffee is definitely one not to be missed out on. An overall balanced coffee, but full of flavour and bright acidity.
