49th Parallel Crop To Cup Story
In Costa Rica, Martin Ureña owns and operates the La Chumeca Micromill and several farms, including La Fila.
Located at 1800 m.a.s.l. in the Tarrazu growing region, Martin is producing only natural processed coffees. He sometimes experiments with more adventurous processing methods and fermentations, always monitoring the coffees progress.
Martin’s coffees are processed first by using a two tank system that separates ‘floaters’ or impurities from the coffee before being sun dried on raised african beds at La Chumeca for approximately 17 days.
Brewing ratio: 1g coffee to 16-17g water / Slurry temperature (coffee+water): 200 - 205 ̊F / 93 - 96 ̊C / Extraction: 20 - 21% / TDS 1.38-1.41%
