The Coffee Diversa is one of our favourite coffee garden in Biolley, Costa Rica, with one of the largest private collection of coffee varietals. By choosing the path of genetic diversification, Gonzalo Hernandez has preserved the history of coffees that were once grown around the world but have long been forgotten.
The Purpurascens Longberry is a natural mutation of the Bourbon varietal. It is characterised by its purple foliage, hence its name. We first learnt of this varietal from Gonzalo in 2016 and were enamoured by the unique cup profile. We are delighted to be able to showcase this coffee once again, and it is tasting just as good as we remember.
