Leo Minor (The Little Lion) is a small, faint constellation; only seen on the clearest nights. It reminds us that even lions start out as small cubs, hardly noticed. Rodrigo Oviedo of Finca El Greco in Costa Rica has found a lion cub of his own in the San Roque variety. San Roque is not considered one of the coveted rare varieties of high quality coffees we hear so much about... at least, not yet. That's because it's brand new to the scene. Rodrigo is one of the first to ever cultivate this new variety, and as you taste, you'll see why he believes (and we agree) this "little lion" will soon be roaring its way into the ranks of coffee royalty.
