La Minita Estate Coffee is grown, carefully tended and processed at La Minita Estate in the Tarrazu district of Costa Rica. It is rare and hand sorted. Many coffee lovers consider La Minita one of the world's best coffees because it is consistently superior. We have offered this coffee since our beginning and customers come back time after time, commenting on the overall quality and great taste of this special coffee. It is one of our favorites. "The best coffee I never heard of," customers have said.
"Hacienda La Minita’s flagship trademark coffee, called “La Minita,” is taken only from the first quality selection of each stage in the process and is finished with a unique hand cleaning. This final step takes a virtually perfect product and, with over 30,000 worker hours of effort, transforms it into the special coffee that is bagged for export as La Minita." Russell Kramer, Hacienda La Minita
