I recently chatted with a group of students and business people in Honduras about how Britt has managed to build a company using gourmet coffee and chocolate as our raw materials. I described how we took these products — the very same products found in Honduras — and transformed them into fine, finished gourmet goods under the Britt brand, and how we did it all from Central America. After many years of hard work, these products are highly valued by consumers of many cultures and in many countries. Read more...

Gourmet coffee and health - here's to both When I'm around people who know I work for Café Britt or when we're drinking coffee, I'm often asked about coffee's effects on human health. What's interesting is that people who are my age - 40 or older - usually ask me about coffee's harmful effects. People younger than 40, far from worried about coffee, often make comments about coffee's health benefits. Read more...

When I’m at business or academic forums, I’m often asked to share anecdotes about Café Britt and our secrets to success. How can a company that was born within Costa Rica’s most traditional industry – an industry that is perpetually in crisis – sustain 850 employees in seven countries, 57 stores, and a thriving on-line coffee business? Even more, how can we manage all this during the worst world economic crisis in 60 years and continue to actively invest in international markets?I’ll tell you how in two words: irreverent innovation.First lesson: “Create something new and relevant and you’ll become irreverent.

I'm just a coffee trader, right? Once upon a time I was tasting coffee and buying it by the ton.

“You can have any color you want, as long as it’s black.” Henry Ford’s infamous quotation about his revolutionary but monotone Model T wasn’t too far off the mark at Café Britt about 10 years ago. A visit to our website or to one of the many Costa Rican supermarkets that sold our coffee back then would have revealed a plentiful supply of coffee to buy – as long as it was in a red or a green bag.

Volume 10: CoffeeTour raises the bar

The fifth edition of the World Barista Championship, the “Olympic Games” for baristas or coffee bartenders, took place in Trieste, Italy June 18-20. The now yearly competition rewards the art, creativity and showmanship of a craft once hidden from view behind the bulk of a commercial espresso machine or the confines of a drive-through coffee cabin. So, when Café Britt set out in June to celebrate the 12,000th performance of our award-winning CoffeeTour, we could think of no better way than showcasing the barista’s art in pure CoffeeTour style – with fun and education.

Volume 6: Adding Value

by

published .

A gradual transition is taking place in Costa Rica toward a freer-trade-based, more complex economy that’s adding value not only to coffee and other agricultural products, but to people as well. It’s pretty exciting. Thirty years ago, when the country produced and exported only unfinished commodities or raw materials, a coffee picker’s son or daughter probably couldn’t have hoped for much more than to continue in the family tradition and become lifetime coffee pickers, themselves.

Volume 5: Southern Comfort: Small Growers Confront Crisis

by

published .

On a recent coffee-buying trip through Costa Rica’s remote Southern Zone I came across two dynamic examples of growers’ cooperatives whose “can do” attitude; focus on quality and hard work is cultivating a profitable, promising future despite their commodity-focused industry’s five-year-old financial crisis. Coopeagri of the southern hub-city of San Isidro de El General and Coope San Vito, a little farther south, unite more than 11,000 mostly small-scale growers who’ve abandoned their generations-old “commodity mentality.” These farmers are going after their share of the gourmet coffee market by working together to become more efficient, grow at higher elevations, modernize their mills and develop forward-looking, professional management.

The May 24-30 show drew tour promoters from all over the world to chat with local sellers and learn about new offerings.

Recent studies have generally found no connection between coffee and increased risk of cancer or heart disease, so why did everyone used to think coffee was less than healthful?

Con el mismo nombre de la que fue su cadena de restaurantes en Israel, el restaurante Doris Metropolitan nos seduce desde que entramos y podemos observar a través de algunas cámaras frías la carne de excelente calidad que se puede elegir para llevar (estilo carnicería) o para que sea preparada en el restaurante. Más al fondo vemos los enormes trozos de carne en una cámara de maduración en un sitio especialmente diseñado y no podemos dejar pasar la variada cava que nos recibe al llegar.   ¿Qué hace que este restaurante sea tan especial? En Doris, se  encargan de la calidad del producto, desde la crianza del ganado hasta la maduración de la carne al estilo  Dry Age (maduración en seco) en el propio restaurante. Read more...
