ONE MORE THING:
Formerly known as ‘El Conquistador’, El Gorrión, or ‘little sparrow’ is prepared for us annually by the legends at Hacienda La Minita. It’s sourced from high elevation farms in Dota, Tarrazú. Incredible nature abounds here, thanks to fierce dedication to land conservation. This commenced in 1996, when Costa Rica famously banned deforestation and created a cash initiative called PES; Payment for Environmental Services Program. PES pays farmers to protect watersheds, conserve biodiversity or mitigate carbon dioxide emissions. It’s been so successful that over 60% of the land is now reforested, providing a home for the little sparrow we love to see each time we visit.
ESPECIALLY TASTY AS
FAM roast (Our acronym thingy for ‘For All Methods’) is how we roll, meaning you can use any coffee from Single O for any brewing method, ranging from your filter through to your espresso, unless from time to time when we recommend something specifically for espresso only or for filter only, and we’ll let you know.
For the espresso dial inners out there (Luv yas!)
