Costa Rica Es Fuego
If you are looking for a cup of coffee that will truly knock your socks off, look no further than this special roast from Costa Rica. You will likely find it hard to believe that there are no artificial flavors added after taking your first sips. The natural sweetness of these beans make drinking it black an absolute pleasure. Whether you taste hints of blueberries, raspberries, mandarin oranges or hibiscus, you'll be sure to enjoy this down to the last sip!
This Costa Rican coffee is on the cutting edge of processing technology, and this Thermic “termico” processed coffee embodies the spirit of innovation. The coffee offers deep sweetness, high-toned florals, and a distinct umami undercurrent. Acidity is bright and juicy, and the body is viscous and smooth.
The Termico process is a new, experimental coffee process invented by don Luis Campos of Cordillera de Fuego. The process starts with cherries picked at their ripest, allowing them to have a high sugar content and thus feeding the Termico process. The semi-washed coffee is then heated with some of the coffee mucilage left on the bean. The exposure to the heat starts to breakdown the natural sugars of the coffee cherries, partially caramelizing them. This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup.
All of our coffee is available in traditional 12 oz resealable bags, or 3 pound 100% compostable resealable bags. Select from the options below if you would like whole bean, or pre-ground.
