Costa Rica Palmares Lots

The best coffee in the world is identified and purchased where it is grown, and the best relationships we have with farmers are those we visit year after year.  A visit always entails collecting samples of the coffees.  Each coffee is bought based on a reference number, called a lot – 37,500 pounds, sequestered out. There may be 500+ bags in a lot. A number is assigned to a lot and price is determined by grade.  Coffee is usually regarded as the second largest traded commodity in the world (behind oil) so buying coffee is a job with which I take great care.
