Mario Acosta


Roaster's comment;

This 100% Red Bourbon coffee is super full-bodied with an amazing depth of flavour. When I see an american diner filter coffee in T.V or Film this is what I imagine it to taste like but in reality I imagine Mario Acosta's lot tastes much better

-Todd Johnson



The Acosta family take their role of stewards of the land very seriously. They take a holistic approach to sustainability, which includes the wellbeing of ecosystems as well as societies. To them, the interests of humans and nature are intertwined and dependent on development that is environmentally sound, socially equitable and economically viable. They do their utmost to protect wildlife and conserve sources of water, ensure good working conditions for their workers and have occupational health and safety programs in place. Mario and his family also take a stringent approach to quality. The coffee on the family’s farms is selectively hand harvested, with only the best and ripest cherries being selected at each ‘pass’. All coffee is meticulously sorted before being delivered for processing to the nearby Beneficio El Carmen. Fernando Alfaro, the owner of the mill and El Carmen Estate, works with the family to process their coffee to their specifications so as to assure its quality and consistency. The majority of coffee from Nazareth is fully washed, soaked and pre-dried. However, very special lots like this one are processed using the natural processing method, for which El Carmen mill is increasingly renowned.

You can purchase their beans here and visit their café at Customs Lane, Leith.
