La Candelilla represents a significant moment for Commonplace as it marks the first time we’ve brought a Gesha varietal through our doors. The highly-revered Gesha coffee garnered significant attention in 2004 when a Panamanian Gesha astounded buyers with its aroma and flavor profile. Since that time, it has become a highly sought after varietal among coffee professionals and one of the industry’s most demanded coffees. This lot comes to us from La Candelilla, a collaboratively- owned micromill in Tarrazu, Costa Rica, established in 2000 by seven smallholders. One of the founders of the mill, Ricardo Hernandez Naranjo is responsible for this particular coffee. Ricardo has been growing coffee for 32 years and spent ten years working as a consultant at processing plants across Central America. As a farmer, he grows several varieties, and through his in-depth knowledge, processes them depending on the profile and weather. Although distribution and availability will be limited, we couldn’t be more delighted to offer this stunning coffee.
