Don Sabino is initially bright and vibrant with notes of lemon and fresh raspberry. These develop into the buttery sweetness of shortbread. Underneath these notes we are lead into a soft herbal finish. As the cup develops, more pastry notes come forward and we're reminded almond paste. The raspberry note transforms from freshly picked to more of a jammy pie filling; which works perfectly with that shortbread note.
Steven Vargas and his father have both worked in coffee their entire lives. In 2011 they established their own micromill named Don Sabino. They specialize in cherry dried coffees and grow multiple varieties across their three farms; El Apostol, El Orvo, and La Roca. This lot is a single variety, catuai selection from Finca El Orvo.
