Costa Rica Miramonte Natural

  • Now this is an exciting coffee. Starmaya variety is the only first generation (F1) coffee hybrid in the world that was propagated by seed. Instead of using biotech or manual pollination, this coffee is the cross between the Marsellesa variety and a naturally sterile mutant of wild Ethiopian coffee. The sterile plant doesn’t produce pollen, thus it can’t self-pollinate. And all the resulting seeds are necessarily a hybrid. This is from Hacienda Miramonte, where Ricardo Gurdian takes pride in growing unique varieties in different lots around the farm. His intuition for cultivating the coffee plants translates into very high quality beans. And Ricardo’s managers and staff have a fervor for post-harvest processing that brings out inherent characteristics of each variety to an intoxicating extent. This is true genius.
