Vara Blanca is a family run farm beautifully located in the Tarrazue region. Vara Blanca started over 50 years ago by Marios grandfather. Mario took over operation in 2010 and slowly transformed production towards the speciality market. We first bought their coffee in 2015 when Mario felt he was ready for a direct trade. Mario have secured a high quality production and use innovative methods to secure fermentation and drying. This lot is a Geisha variety with a honey process that are pulped on the farm and then slowly dried on shaded beds in Marios mothers rose garden.
