From the world's first and only coffee garden with the most extensive private coffee collection with over 800 coffee species, we are happy to offer this micro-lot of Rume Sudan, a 90+ pts coffee from Costa Rica not to miss.
Rare and not very well known, the Rume Sudan is a wild coffee of Sudanese origin, simply incredible. Often abandoned for its difficulty to cultivate, this variety is resistant to diseases, especially Coffee Berry Disease. This washed-processed coffee is crisp, bright, and surprisingly sweet.
What is so special about this coffee?
With 93pts, this coffee is bright, crisp, deeply sweet. Honey, lilac, cedar, tea rose, mango in aroma and cup. Satiny-smooth body. Notes of mango and spice-toned florals carry the short finish, while honey lingers in the long.
From the Coffea diversa garden in Costa Rica, this coffee is fully-washed and sun dried using raised drying beds covered by plastic tunnels.
A one-of-a-kind coffee garden
Coffea diversa is home to the world's largest private coffee varietal collection, with over 800 botanical coffee varieties. It is located in one of the remotest regions of Costa Rica. A region that is not traditionally known to produce coffee because it is geographically challenging. This region, however, has one of the best micro-climate soils and altitudes to grow coffee in the world. The altitude range at the Coffea diversa garden is 1200-1350 meters above sea level.
About Coffea diversa
There is nothing similar to Coffea diversa. Like in a flower garden, where you would find many types of plants producing many different kinds of flowers, in the Coffea diversa garden, you would find many rare coffees. A unique place with the most extensive private collection of coffee in the world.
Founded in 2003 by Mr. Gonzalo Hernandez, Coffea diversa has two main gardens, one in Costa Rica and another in Guatemala. The Costa Rica garden is located in a very remote area in the Biolley district, right next to the largest nature reserve in Central America, La Amistad.
