Melico Los Pinos

Melico Los Pinos, Tarrazu, Costa Rica

Grown in Tarrazu, Costa Rica

Complex. Deep. Fall-ish, or maybe memories of spring. Light, raw honey lifted by crisp, bright berries (raspberry, bing) acidity with hints of lemon on the main floor. Then, jasmine and sweet floral aromatics dance on the roof. Overall, light-bodied, but deeply layered.

More about the growers

Heritage + meticulous everything

The famed Hacienda La Minita is one of the farms that first you learn when starting in coffee. For decades, they have be at the forefront, developing and improving their equipment and methods to produce some of the world’s most memorable coffees. Every step of the process is intensely cared about and tightly controlled, from variety selection, planting, harvesting ripe cherries, extensive sorting at almost every stage, to meticulous drying and more. This is possible largely because they have the desire to, but also because everything happens right on the farm and under their action. It’s an amazing program and they are still innovating, boasting the most technically advanced mill anywhere in the world.

Melico Los Pinos is a plot separated from Hacienda La Minita’s main farm, located directly across the Tarrazu River near their mill, Beneficio Rio Tarrazu. It was actually a separated lot long before their microlot program (Beneficio Rio Tarrazu microlots) began because it was noticed in a daily cupping. The cattura growing there is brighter with a cleaner complexity and vibrancy than the plots across the river and still stand out on it own.

The importance of small moments

Our daily rituals may only make up tiny moments in our lives, but they are a powerful force that weaves together life-long relationships moment by moment. We trust in the small things most. We believe that when we make our personal moments more pleasurable, more vibrant, more sustainable, and more healthy, we do it not for the sake of that moment, but for the broader impact that moment has. We have chosen to use our love of coffee to be a beautiful part of something more.

You get more when you subscribe

When you subscribe to Deft, you gain access to limited and unique collaborations with like-minded artists that elevate, broaden, and deepen our experiences, not just of coffee, but how we approach our daily lives.

Keep an eye out for our first collaboration coming soon.

The delicate aromatics that we love dissipate first, and push us to keep the coffee as fresh as possible. So the source of the coffees we include in our subscription will change throughout the year, but our philosophy for selecting them won’t.. We prefer coffees that are complexly fruit-forward, and gently sweet: floral aromas underscored with berry, spice, stone fruit flavors; and tempered with enough sweetness to balance it. The vibrancy of a truly great coffee, delicately roasted while it’s in its peak window is one of the most beautiful experiences to be had, we think. We think you’ll love it.

We keep this page updated the coffee we are currently delivering, along with some deep-dive information you nerdy types

We ship on Wednesdays via USPS First Class mail, so depending on where you live, you should have coffee in a day or two after that. Just enough time for it to degas.

You have almost complete control over how your subscription works. We can’t change the day we roast (yet), but beyond that, you are able to manage your subscription from your account panel in ways most subscriptions don’t allow you to do.

You can adjust how much, how often or pause for any reason. On vacation? That’s awesome. We’ll hold off on sending your next bag until you get back. Not drinking as much as you used to? Hmm, well ok, you can choose to get less frequent deliveries until you are back up to speed. Guests in for the week? Sounds fun. Add a bag to your next delivery.

Of course, you can always reach out to us directly if you need to. The only thing we ask is that you make any changes to your scheduled delivery before midnight on the Monday before we roast. And since you pay as you go it’s easy adjust on the fly.

Well Done & Thank You!

You'll get a confirmation email shortly. We're excited to get going and we're almost ready. When we are, you'll be the first to hear.
