  • Award Winning Flavor – Our premium espresso blend scores high marks in the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA)Ratings. This certification is granted only to a few specialty coffee makers that meet their rigorous technical requirements which are based on organoleptic features, proper water temperature, brewing time, and ability to brew within the SCA Golden Cup recommendations.
  • Costa Rican Coffee Is Unique – Did you know that Costa Rica is the only country in the world where only 100% Arabica coffee is cultivated?

Developed in our house roastery, our espresso blend beans offer a robust flavor that you’ll be sure to savor. Defined by its well balanced acidity and body, creamy long-lasting clean aftertaste, sweet flavor and aroma. Say hello to your new favorite cup.

Costa Rican Coffee is unique!

Costa Rica is the only country in the world where the Arabica coffee variety is cultivated. Volcanic soil of the land is great for coffee, allowing deep drainage for perfect mineral access to plants. Highly acidic and rich in nutrients such as magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and zinc, it affects the body of the grain. Weather consistency and changes in temperature affect the process of maturation. At high altitudes the fruits develop slower and are characterized by higher concentration of sugars, more complexity and density.

San Marcos

The beans from Tarrazu highlands are what makes our San Marcos coffee unique. The area is world famous for its top quality coffee. Shade grown in the mountains at altitudes 1200-1900 meters above sea level the cherries preserve maximum concentration of compelling flavor. Acidic soils of sedimentary origin and cool mountain climate allow slow uniform maturation and high quality hard beans. The perfect balance between body and aroma was created in our house roastery in San Ramon, where true masters packed the spirit, essence and purity from our selected coffee beans for you.

San Ramon

San Ramon is an area in the Western Valley, which has a year-round moderate climate and almost perfect conditions for the cultivation of the best coffee bean: very fertile volcanic soils, mild humidity and adequate sunlight. More than 75% of coffee here is shade-grown. Our San Ramon coffee has fresh and tender acidity, fruity savor, sweet flavor with dark cocoa notes, rich aroma and creamy long aftertaste.

Dark Roast
