Advent Calendar – Day 12

Advent Calendar – Day 12

Back on the mountains of 1,400 m altitude!

In bag 12 is another coffee from Costa Rica. Seems like the guys from Tres Cabezas fell in love with the coffee of this country;)

Hacienda Sonora, Villalobos

  • The Family Guardia has been growing coffee on the Hacienda Sonora for more than 50 years.
  • It is located on the fertile foothills of the famous volcano Poas in the West Valley of Costa Rica and is largely untouched jungle.
  • The green coffee of this Villalobos grows to 1,400 m and is processed as “Natural”. The fully ripe coffee cherries are put into the sun as a whole. After drying with the husk they are pulped.
  • As a result, the coffee beans absorb the full aroma of the fruit.
  • So the coffee is wonderfully fruity, soft and full-bodied.
  • There are notes of cherries, caramel, oranges and exotic dried fruits to discover.
  • As well as cocoa and caramel tones in the long-lasting creamy chocolate finish.

I am also very much in love with this coffee. So I will have it as a French café au lait today.

Café au Lait

  • is very common for breakfast.
  • Traditionally, it is served in the “bol”, a bowl-shaped dish.
  • The coffee and hot milk are poured at the same time, otherwise it is not real!
  • And the coffee is filter coffee from a french press, not an espresso as we are not in Italy 😉

With bag 13 we start tomorrow in the second half of the coffee advent calendar.
