About this Coffee

In Costa Rica, we spent a day in Luis Alberto’s 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser, sweeping around the corners of mountains, diving into valleys, touring coffee farms with Luis and his son. Seemingly at every turn, Luis would interrupt whatever coffee-farming story he was telling to point at a particular mountain and exclaim, “Finca Dragon!” Luis was proud-- the coffee he harvested on this majestic mountain placed second in the 2012 Cup of Excellence competition. When we finally reached the mountain, climbing it in the Cruiser, the view was stunning. And when we cupped the coffee from this dragon-named mountain farm? Well, it was stunning too.

We are really loving coffee brewed in the Chemex these days, so it isn’t surprising that we were pumped about Finca Dragon’s delightful clarity. (Also, we’ll just say it: the name Finca Dragon makes us feel like teenage boys drawing fire-breathing beasts on our Trapper Keepers.) This coffee begins with a sweet note of white grapes and the snap of green apple. As the coffee cools, rich milk chocolate presents itself with a turn of flavor that reminds us of honeydew melon. This isn’t a fire-breather: it’s more tart, with a sweet, lovely, long finish.

Brewing Recommendations 

This coffee shines when filter brewed, we suggest the Chemex or Kalita brewing devices. Generally, filter brewing produces better coffee clarity (ability to tell flavors apart) than body (texture, weight in your mouth) and we love this coffee's clarity.
