Costa Rica La Candelilla Coffee

This coffee is only available in 250g bags of wholebeans as a filter roast.

La Candelilla was the first independent mill created in Costa Rica in the 2000’s. They used to deliver their cherries to the huge neighbour Coope Tarrazu mill but decided in 1998 to add value to their product taking control of the process. The pulp from wet mill is piled in one parcel before being used as organic fertilizer. Chemicals are used but biodynamic techniques have been utilised to deter pests. They send soil samples to the national research centre every year and adjust the fertilising, the planting, etc. according to the results.

9 to 10 pickers help the family during the season to harvest Caturra, Red and Yellow Catuai, Typica, Geisha and SL28. As they receive the cherries, a sample is taken to assess the number of floaters, immature beans, broca affected beans and to calculate an estimated yield for the lot. The washed and honeys are processed through a Penagos machine. The process applied depends on the variety and on the demand.

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.
