About Winer of Costa Rica

For Winer, Folly Coffee looks for coffees with a complex acidity. This coffee from Finca Tono in Costa Rica is a perfect example. The Aguilera brothers, owners of Finca Tono, are producing some mighty fine coffees thanks to their focus on quality in growing and processing.

Their care and hard work certainly paid off, as seen in this complex coffee. Winer is a honey processed lot, meaning the ripe cherries are hulled to remove the skins, then spread to dry with the fruity pulp still on the beans. As they dry, the beans absorb this mucilage, imbuing the coffee with a characteristic complex, fruity acidity. For the adventurous coffee drinker as well as fruit and wine lovers. Enjoy!
