Costa Rica San Francisco Coffee (Honey)

San Francisco is the name of one district in the ‘Cordillera Central’ also called ‘La Zona de los Santos’ but this is also the name of the farm from Edgar Fallas Solis, his wife Ligia and their son William. The family owns 10-12 hectares of coffees intercropped with avocados, citrus and banana trees. The farm is split in a few different parcels culminating from 1,400 to 2,000 metres above sea level. The micro lots are produced at 1,800 + masl.

Edgar is the second generation working on this 55-year-old farm originally planted with Caturra and now the addition of Catuai and Catimore. They get seedlings from the national research centre Icafe. At the moment the fertilization plan is 50/50 organic and chemical but Edgar would like to make it 75/25. Protecting environment is really important for him. A lot of biodynamic technics are used in the farm (use of garlic, chilli, intercropping, etc). He’s really aware of climate change and of the necessity of adapting his farming.

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.
