ABOUT THIS COFFEE

Our Anaerobico Cordillera del Fuego comes from producer Luis Eduardo Campos. Luis is an independent Costa Rican coffee farmer who is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to improve his coffee production.

The flavors and attributes in this coffee go beyond the traditional Tarrazú flavors. They can be attributed to the coffee’s special anaerobic processing method.

ABOUT THE ANAEROBIC PROCESS

The Anaerobic process starts with the selection of handpicked, mature coffee cherries that have a Brix degree (a measurement of sugar content) near 26. The coffee is de-pulped and put in stainless steel with all its mucilage, which, in the absence of CO2, purposely creates an anaerobic fermentation process. The coffee develops in a unique series of acids such as lactic and malic which will translate to a very complex flavor. Once ready the coffee is 100% sun dried.

ABOUT THE REGION

Costa Rica borders Nicaragua on its northern border and Panama to the south. It's a country that prides itself on its quality of life. Farm workers—including migrants who come for the harvest—are guaranteed a minimum wage and have access to the national healthcare system.
