Spring comes a bit later to us here in the mountains and we are so excited as life is starting to burst around us. Life here feels light and clean like our newly arrived Costa Rica Monte Crisol West Valley beans. This coffee is harvested in winter with the flowering taking place in March. It has all the characteristics we love about Costa Rican coffee, bright and refreshing. Monte Crisol coffee brings to the cup a delightful chocolate cherry undertone which is not often found in Costa Rican Coffee, providing a sensational cup of coffee. It is a perfect balance of serious flavor and refreshing brightness.
The Monte Crisol bean comes to us from a fully functioning cooperative which reports that the 1350 members all receive full benefits. This includes medical services to all associates and their families, financial services for the growers, and economical contribution through Madre Verde Foundation. The Coop is also committed to the environment. They have implemented forest protection programs, they are certified ISO 9001/14001, they minimize water consumptionand process optimization during milling. Solid wastes are transformed into organic fertilizers.
We also restocked some of our current favorites including Sulawesi Toraja, Peru Decaf Organic and our current shop favorite, Guatemala Ceylan Organic!
