  • About Aguilera brothers SL28 | Costa Rica

    This is a fantastic high cup score honey-processed coffee from the Aguilera Brothers in the West Valley, Costa Rica. They are very well known around the world as producers of fantastic speciality coffee and we first bought their coffee back in 2014!

    This coffee has been harvested from SL28 trees. This varietal is mainly grown in Kenya and has become famous for producing coffee with amazing cup scores and vibrant acidity.

    The coffee was hand harvested and pulped to remove the outer layer of fruit. Once the outer layer of fruit has been removed, the coffee is laid out to dry on concrete patios under the protection of a polytunnel

Nice and balanced taste with a slight acidic edge.

Very nice

Ordered this along with the Colombian one at similar price . Would’ve reordered this if the Colombian wasn’t totally gorgeous .. which I did reorder. . This had bit more “ bite” so whilst lovely not quite as smooth in my aeropress with milk … to our palate … But we love South American coffees generally .. Well done HCR again

The Ultimate Coffee

The Ultimate coffee for me with such flavour and depth, richness and a long finish. It is the best coffee from the Aguilera brothers tasting of caramel, fresh walnuts maybe hints of apricot a mellow golden flavour just excellent.

Costa Rica Honey Process

SL 28 a bean when correctly roasted has a very different after taste that lingers in the mouth and it is here not during the drinking that the tasting notes for me flood out. ☕️Yum

Toffee apple tastic...

A lovely coffee. Personally can't detect much tangerine but the apple and caramel really come through.
