We are so exited to offer you this rare and dynamic lot from Costa Rica. Herbazu carries a punch. Sweet, light and bright acidity with undertones of pomegranate wrap around the taste of tangerine and dried date. They bounce out of the cup and finish up with a chocolate kiss on the cheek. This is a good coffee for any occasion, especially the special ones.

Grown under the canopy of shade trees, the perfectly ripe cherries are hand-picked, de-pulped, and floated in sorting channels at Luz Marina's own mill, and then dried slowly to maximize acidity and depth of flavor. Once the coffee is dried, it goes through a reposo (resting period) of at least 60 days before being dry-milled and shipped to us. Like many of our preferred growers, Luz Marina takes a holistic approach to sustainability: Minimizing synthetic pesticides and using the discarded pulp and red wiggler worms for a closed loop fertilizing system. Her water treatment system meets the Costa Rican government's high environmental standards and preserves the quality of the river that flows through the estate. She offers her seasonal employees outstanding housing & health care, as well as a stateof- the-art water filtration system for their drinking water.

Tarrazu coffee is known for being crisp, clean, and brightly acidic. Luz Marina's Herbazu offers that classic profile plus extra body and sweetness and a lingering, buttery aftertaste. All of this comes together to offer a coffee that stands alone either as a dark or a light roast, while offering the perfect citric top note for blends. At Zoka we have chosen this coffee as one of our lightest roasts. It is a remarkably clean and crisp in the cup. We are truly excited about this one.
