This month’s coffee comes from Santa Clara from the farm Finca Santa Teresa. Finca Santa Teresa stretches out over 237 acres and is nestled high up in the cloud forest at 1400-1600 metres above sea level, adjacent to La Amistad National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The farm is famed for its award-winning Geisha coffees and it's also home to Caturra, Catuai, Typica and Caturra plants. The La Llorona river provides a natural water source, the volcanic soil is full of nutrients and the Pacific and Atlantic weather systems ensure an optimal balance of rainfall and sunshine.
Jemima takes its name from the plot on which it was grown. In the cup this coffee has blackberry and green apple notes when first brewed, with floral chamomile, cranberry and soft lime as it cools.

Recommended Brew Method
What is washed processing?
The coffee bean is ‘depulped’ to remove the skin then rested in water-filled fermentation vats, where naturally occurring enzymes cause the rest of the fruit to dissolve.
