- Product Details
Bright and sweet acidity with chocolate notes and a creamy mouthfeel.
La Candelilla Estate, named for the flicker of fireflies on summer nights, is where the Sanchez family, fifth generation coffee farmers, work together to create this extraordinary coffee.
Sharing a commitment for excellence, nine brothers and sisters each cultivate a section of land within the estate. For this offering, they culled their first pickings, which showcase the coffee's lush sweetness. The beans were then processed to the family's high standards at the estate mill. The resulting flavor is exquisite, the quality sublime.
This special Starbucks Reserve® coffee is in very limited supply and only available at select stores.
