Signature Vida Blend Coffee

More than a saying, more than a co­ffee. Pura Vida is a way of life, our very favourite motto from Costa Rica. Ticos use Pura Vida to say hi, say bye and more importantly; everything’s good! To us 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.

Our 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 our Vida Blend.

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

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
