About the farm producers and La Candelilla Estate 
Finca Palmilera is a 15 hectare coffee farm that has been in the Sánchez family for over 20 years. Didier and Pablo Sánchez manage the farm, located 1500 meters above sea level in San Lorenzo, Costa Rica. They represent two generations of the Sánchez family and are committed to producing quality specialty coffee through hard work and technology. The Sánchez family is focused on improving processes at their farm and experimenting with new types of processing methods. They produced this exceptional natural process lot from 100% ripe cherries that were dried on raised beds and patios for 20 days.

La Candelilla Estate was possibly the first micromill in Costa Rica and a large undertaking of 7 siblings who operated their small farms independently until pooling together their resources during the coffee crisis of 1997 to start their own wet mill.  Since it opened in 2000, La Candelilla has planted exotic varietals and become experts in natural processed coffees.

What is the Gesha varietal? 
Gesha is a variety of coffee tree that originated in the Gori Gesha forest, Ethiopia, though it is now grown in several other nations in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. It is widely known for its unique flavor profile of floral and sweet notes, iand its exclusivity as its demand has increased over the years. The flavor profile of Gesha coffee is one aspect that contributes to its renown. Gesha is known for its aroma and sweet flavor of floral notes, jasmine, chocolate, berries, & honey. These sweet floral notes, and complex flavor profiles are some of the many characteristics that Gesha coffee shares with most other African coffees. Gesha is perhaps the most valuable coffee in the world.
