Vida Blend Coffee

More than a saying, more than a co­ffee. Pura Vida is a way of life, HH's very favourite motto from Costa Rica. Ticos use Pura Vida to say hi, say bye and more importantly; everything’s good! To HH it means clarity in contentment in the most raw of forms. No worries, no fuss, no stress. The act of being thankful for this simple life of ours.

The most common theory on the origin of the phrase comes from a Mexican movie by Gilberto Martínez Solares called ¡Pura vida! that came to Costa Rica 1956. In the film, the saying is used by the main character who remains optimistic, unflustered and upbeat, despite the unfortunate series of events that befall him. Although it took a little while to catch on, the phrase Pura Vida was being used nationwide by 1970.

HH's nod to the Pura Vida lifestyle is this organic espresso blend, sourcing co­ffees from all over the world to find the best organic beans for this Vida Blend.

Expect notes of orange, hazelnut and caramel. A sense of clarity and an un-fussed pour.

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

"With consumers working from home and unable to visit their favourite coffee shops as a result of the pandemic, they have been honing in on their barista skills to get their coffee fix at home. They are also buying coffee shop branded coffee to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience.""Despite the fact that many consumers are facing economic uncertainty, premium and branded coffees have an opportunity to market themselves as affordable luxuries. The purse strings may need to tighten but a premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than drinks from a coffee shop. Consumers are discovering it is safer and more cost-effective to have their own coffee at home and this trend is likely to continue even once the virus is under relative control...This shift opens up a real opportunity for coffee and the products that will support them in recreating that experience at home."For more: Comunicaffe International
