The beans for our Peruvian Dark Roast come from the Cuzco Province in the Quillabamba Region of Peru, which is located along the historic Incan Path that leads to Machu Picchu. Using natural and ecological processes, the small mountain coffee growers that dot this trail produce some of the highest quality coffee beans in Peru.

Plantations located in the Quillabamba region are situated among the Andes Mountains and are subjected to extreme microclimate changes experiencing widely varying temperatures throughout the day. Surprisingly, it is these extreme conditions that give the coffee beans harvested there a remarkable flavor. The beans that make up our Dark Roast blend are 100% Arabica beans, which are known to be more fickle and susceptible to disease and climate changes. For this reason, coffee growers must keep a watchful eye over their crop.

To ensure the highest quality crop, we have worked exclusively with growing cooperatives since our entrance into the Peruvian coffee market in 2004. Since then, we have maintained a strong relationship with COCLA. Made up of 23 co-ops, COCLA ensures environmental responsibility and good agricultural practices, with a focus on strengthening the local economy. The organization's commitment to a high-quality product mirrors our own, which has helped us maintain such a strong relationship over the past 10 years.

For this blend, we dark roasted the beans to allow the naturally occurring oils to rise to the surface, resulting in a bold, characteristically Peruvian coffee flavor. You will also note a deep, rich honey flavor and exceptional body.

In order to create the perfect espresso, specially roasted premium beans with specific qualities are essential. There are two main methods by which we enjoy coffee: infusion and extraction. Infusion is what occurs when you brew coffee, allowing the grounds and water to fuse together. Espresso is made through extraction, a more scientifically delicate process of creating a coffee whose best flavors can be extracted and enjoyed in a matter of seconds. !--There are two main methods by which we enjoy coffee: infusion and extraction. Infusion is what occurs when you brew coffee, allowing the grounds and water to fuse together. Extraction however, is the much more scientifically delicate process of creating a coffee whose best flavors can be extracted and enjoyed in a matter of seconds. In order to create the perfect espresso though, premium beans with specific qualities are paramount.-- Using a house blend of plump, premium beans from the Central and Western Valley regions of Costa Rica, we’ve concocted a mildly acidic espresso that yields a rich and foamy crema. As our darkest roast, the flavor notes of dark chocolate are undeniable. Coupled with undertones of apple and wildflowers and aromas of fruit, lightly toasted bread, and caramel, it’s no wonder why this blend is one of our best sellers, not only in the US but also in local coffee shops around Costa Rica. After our creation of the Costa Rican Dark and Light Roasts, we roasted a small amount of espresso to introduce to the Costa Rican public. At the time, the espresso scene was more limited to Italy and Europe and because of this, there were few coffee shops around San Jose that had a machine and could prepare an espresso. Not letting this deter us, we took it upon ourselves to teach the Costa Rican public to prepare, drink, and enjoy espresso and to this day, you will find well-known coffee shops using our esp

Full of flavor, this is the decaf of your dreams. Our house blend decaf is a mix of the harder, acidic beans of the Central Valley and dense, full-bodied beans of the Western Valley. After purchasing the beans for this blend from local growers in Costa Rica, we transport them to Veracruz, Mexico, where they are decaffeinated via the indirect water method. The beans are first infused with water vapor and then washed a second time with the same water to restore flavor that may have been lost during the first washing. This method retains as much of the flavor as possible, while eliminating 99.9% of the caffeine. Once decaffeinated, the beans are returned to Costa Rica where we carefully roast them to bring out their optimum flavors. Despite the dark roast required to coax the flavors out of decaffeinated beans, this blend is mild, with a light acidity. Its flavor is balanced and complex, with a unique aroma of seeds and dry leaves complemented by flavor notes of honey and clove. !--Some people would argue that decaf coffee isn't even really coffee, however, we think you'll beg to differ after trying our decaf. This coffee is a special "Mezcla de la Casa" or "House Blend", which is a mix of the harder, acidic beans of the Central Valley and dense, full-bodied beans of the Western Valley, which make the perfect combination of beans for a decaf. After purchasing the beans for this blend from local growers, we transport them to Veracruz, Mexico where they undergo the "indirect water method" decaffeination process that eliminates 99.9% of the caffeine without compromising on flavor. The beans are first 'washed' by infusing them with water vapor, and then washed a second time with the same water to restore any flavor that may have been 'lost' during the first washing. In this way, we are retaining as much of the flavor as possible, something you may not find in other decaf coffees.
