Located in the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica, this area of San Jose is scattered with mountains, vibrant, and green. At 1560 – 2000 meters above sea level, some of the Gamboa’s plantings are among the highest coffee farms in the country. Canet is situated at the point of highest altitude in Costa Rica’s Tarrazu coffee plantation. The region is densely populated with fruit plantations mainly growing the passionfruit. Hence coffee plants are few and far between as they can only be planted in a specific area where special care is given and only ripened red coffee cherries are selected.
This is a genuine family farming tradition; coffee farming for the Gamboa family dates back to the 18th century. Family patriarch, Tutto Gamboa, has been in the coffee business since he was 15. A few years back, he passed handed over the reins of daily operations to his son and daughter-in-law, Emilio and Laura. Together, they own five farms and process their coffee at their micro-mill, Montes De Oro. Tutto remains active, however, as coffee runs deep through his veins.
A truly remarkable expression of a Tarrazu coffee – Costa Rica Canet with sweetness of strawberries, Ripened fruit aroma, Sweet fragrance of spices, a nuanced citric complexity and cleanliness.
