It's all in the Brewing

This coffee is cultivated in the “Land of poets” in the West Central Valley region near San Ramon. It is carefully
produced, selected and harvested from varieties such as Caturra, red Catuai and Villa Sarchi between 1,200 to
1,500 metres above sea level. It begins and ends with Cafe de Altura de San Ramon, which owns and operates a
state-of-the-art mill designed to receive cherries from many small farms and consistently process this well balanced
regional blend.

Cherries are placed in a large tank with water to remove the less dense and damaged beans that float. Next the
cherries are de-pulped and pass through a demucilager that mechanically strips the mucilage from the beans. All
of this is done with a water recycling system. The washed beans move down from the wet-mill through a long,
elevated conveyor belt into a machine that uses forced air to shed any remaining water. The coffee then passes
through a series of dryers to gently reduce the moisture to 11 percent. All of this happens in a matter of just over 72
hours, which seems fast until you stop to consider that not a minute is wasted in the process. After all this, the
coffee is rested for a period of at least a month in silos and then milled for export with another equally impressive
series of machines dedicated to dehulling and sorting green beans by weight and color. With every detail of the
post-harvest operation covered, producers can turn their full attention to farm management practices with a
special emphasis on sustainable practices

    When I try new coffee, I look for references of “caramel” as a benchmark and this Costa Rica doesn’t disappoint. Great all day coffee!
