A sunny sipper anytime of day. We welcome the return of this sweet and complex cup, layered with notes of apricot and brown sugar.

Ricardo "El Tigre" Zelaya
Part of the famed Zelaya coffee family (and cousin to Luis Pedro Zelaya Jr.), Ricardo and his wife Cynthia are some of our favorite people in the world to visit. He’s constantly investing, inventing and innovating, and the payoff is clear — Santa Clara coffees have won Cups of Excellence in 2001, 2009 and 2010.
This coffee is grown in the shadow of three volcanoes — including the very active Fuego Volcano. The last time we visited, Fuego was spewing plumes of ash and the lava was flowing — it’s that same volcanic ash that contributes to the incredible minerality of the soil, and in turn, the beautiful fruitiness of the coffee.
