Luz Marina Trujillo grew up in a family of coffee producers, and talks happily about spending her childhood playing with coffee beans instead of dolls. Now, she 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. Luz Marina’s coffee is grown under shade, and the perfectly ripe cherries are hand picked, and sorted for quality at her own mill. The cherries are then carefully de-pulped, washed and dried slowly on the patios at Finca Santa Elena to fully develop acidity and depth of flavor. Additional care is given to her coffee in the “reposo” stage resting in parchment for at least 30 days after drying before being milled and shipped up to Atlas Coffee Importers
Tarrazú coffee is known for being crisp, clean, and bright, and Luz Marina’s coffee offers that classic profile plus a lightly syrupy body and sweetness and we believe that our offering showcases that beautifully.
