Notes from the Costa Rica harvest 2018July 13, 2018

Preview of the 2017 harvest in Costa RicaDecember 29, 2016
Last year was a pretty productive harvest for Costa Rica. In the history of the country there hadn’t been so much volume like the 2015-2016 harvest. Which was good but at the same time tough for farmers to sell their coffees because of the high offer in the market. Despite the harvest was massive for Costa Rica, the good quality was there and I found great coffees among a small group of 6 farmers, with whom we decided to start to work for many years.
Our Costa Rica Coffee ProjectJune 22, 2016
The most fascinating thing with costa Rica is the awareness of lot separation and different processing and preparation methods. You’ll find great representative coffees of everything from fully washed, different levels of honeys as well as super clean naturals. Even if the coffees can be expensive due to cost of production we totally find it worth it.
