Costa Rica San Isidro Coffee

Finca San Isidro has been in the Ruiz family for four generations with Enersto Ruiz now continuing the legacy of innovative and delicious coffee production. Rich, dense and sticky sweet we think this makes the perfect filter option for those cooler autumn mornings.

In modernising the farms operations the Ruiz family is also adapting to new challenges with the age of their coffee trees, leaf rust and climate change all in mind. This has led to a cycle of regeneration over the last 4 years with new trees and modern varieties planted in an effort to improve and study productivity with World Coffee Research and ICAFE (Costa Rica’s Coffee Institute).

This process makes for a unique comparison of varieties and processing methods with each section of the farm cultivated and processed separately. In this case, we have received a tasty selection of Caturra & Catuai, naturally processed at the nearby Benefico La Eva mill.

On delivery the cherry is heaped in mounds to pre-ferment for 24 hours before being moved to greenhouses for an initial drying. This helps the coffee gradually step down in humidity before drying on sunny patios for 3 weeks. Back on the farm, the family have been planting more diverse fruit trees and improving local water management to replenish the soil and feed their workforce. It is no doubt that this attention to detail leads to such distinctive and clean coffees.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
