Tasting Notes: Candied Almond- Dark Chocolate - Caramel - Date


Rolando Esquivel Bararantes and his family are tucked along the Tarrazu mountains in an area that is absolutely beautiful to visit. The climate is warm, yet crisp and the layers of fog ebb and flow as the nighttime temps dip down and the daytime temps creep back up. When the local co-op mill wasn't allowing as many individual lots to pursue the level of excellence they strove for, the family built their own mill. They've invested heavily in raised beds, and utilize their own pulping station to separate lots and push experiments.

Seven years ago, Jared was able to travel to the farm and make a strong personal connection. These coffees had long been his favorites from the region, and Ruby was able to be the first US roaster to visit Cerro La Cruz and be able to buy coffee from
the new project, operating off their own mill and equipment.

This type of risk — assuming the financial burden of a new processing facility — rings oddly familiar for Ruby, mirroring our own journey starting a roastery in Central Wisconsin. We're absolutely thrilled to be able to partner with Rolando and his family on this coffee and future endeavors as well.

Ruby works directly with the Barantes family to negotiate pricing, sourcing lots, and coordinating exporting efforts. The commitment to our partnership gives both Ruby and the Barantes family consistency and clarity, year after year, into what the cost of production is now that processing is handled in house, and what fair prices for their coffees actually are. For the second year, we're delighted to offer the Ruby Lot, which was specifically designated for Ruby by Cerro La Cruz.
