Unit 14 Espresso – Round Hill Roastery
The Patalillo Mill was founded in 1888 by the Castro family and had an important role in the development of the coffee industry in Costa Rica. The micro mill has remained in the family for more than 5 generations and is currently managed by the ECOM Group.
The Tarrazu region is a short drive from the capital San Jose and is famed for it’s high quality coffees with bold acidity. There are about 30 farmers who all have access to the Patalillo mill. Lots are created based on daily pickings, quality and size.
We are blown away by this coffee and we feel it offers everything wanted in daily espresso. There is great acidity, warming and rich nuttiness all wrapped in a long milk chocolate like finish.
