This coffee is round and balanced, loaded with notes of caramel, orange zest and almond. Silky bodied and sweet, with an elegant finish, it handles cream and sugar just fine, thank you!
About Luz Marina Trujillo of Costa Rica
Luz Marina Trujillo produces one of the finest coffees available on her estate, Santa Elena, in the highlands of Costa Rica’s most famous coffee growing region, Tarrazú. She grows her coffee under shade, and the perfectly ripe cherries are hand picked, then sorted for quality at her own mill.
Tarrazú coffee is known for being crisp, clean, and bright, and this special lot from Luz Marina’s hard-working hands offers that classic profile plus a lightly syrupy body and sweetness, and an elegant finish.

had this to say:
"Notes of bran flakes, sugary nut butters and toasted marshmallow offer up a more mellow Costa Rica, which is normally a bit brighter. Good with cream and sweetener. "

Mela Coffee Roasting Co.
Mela Coffee Roasting Company is situated in the beautiful Wenatchee Valley of Washington State, nestled at the foot of the Cascade Mountains where the mighty Columbia River rolls on its majestic way to the Pacific. “Mela” comes from the Italian word for apple, a nod to Wenatchee, considered the apple capital of the world, and to the Italian roots of espresso coffee.
Mela’s mission is to steward coffees well, and in so doing, give honor those who grew them. One of the ways they do this is by roasting specialty beans in such a way as to draw out the unique characteristics and flavors of the region. Since their beginning in 2007, they have been inviting customers into the coffee conversation, sharing their own passion for farm-to-cup values in the form of stellar coffee, roasted well. Besides their roastery, they serve crafted espresso and coffee drinks at their café in the heart of downtown Wenatchee.
