Valley Heart Ranch, PacasMontecito, CA
|Tasting Notes:||Cocoa butter, white grapes, and hints of honey clover|
This Pacas varietal from Valley Heart Ranch is our first offering from Darrell & Kirsten Becker. Nestled between mountain and sea, this organic orchard is composed of 5 acres of coffee growing on fertile loam soil layered by beautiful stone wall terraces. The dynamic cup quality carries a tasty sweetness of white chocolates along with a buttery mouthfeel and a tight balance of a lemony citrus reminiscent of a Riesling. We expect Valley Heart Ranch to set new standards amongst the upper echelons of the coffee world for a long time.
PLEASE NOTE: COFFEE IS SHIPPED WITHIN ONE WEEK OF ORDERING AND WITHIN 2-3 DAYS AFTER ROASTING
Valley Heart Ranch:
Kirsten and Darrell Becker
Nestled between the mountains and the sea, Valley Heart Ranch is owned and operated by Kirsten & Darrell Becker and carries a long legacy of farming in Santa Barbara, California.
Agriculture operations at the ranch began in the 1920’s with citrus and evolved into a commercial floriculture nursery until 2016 when the unparalleled terroir began its transformation into a certified organic coffee farm. With its unique coastal setting offering cool mornings and warm afternoons, VHR is one the few organic coffee producers in California and the only coffee grower in Montecito.
The heart-shaped valley now boasts several varietals of in-ground lush coffee scattered over five acres of loam soil terraces. With their shared vision now in full operation and a back-to-basics approach to farming, Kirsten and Darrell are thrilled to offer this exquisite product grown with technical expertise and lots of heart.
