A perfect day in Costa Rica, one would say, can be spent soaking your cares away in the mineral hot springs of the Terrazú volcano. With a cup of locally-grown coffee in-hand, of course. But, if you can’t make the trip, allow Black Rose to bring you right there!
Grown at an altitude of over 1200 meters, ripe Caturra and Catuai coffee cherries are harvested by hand, then delivered to the 1888-built Beneficio San Diego mill – the oldest-operating wet mill in Costa Rica. Using a patented process, beans are put into natural-parchment bags and fermented in pure volcanic mineral water. This creates a unique exchange, accelerating the removal of unwanted material and allowing for the absorption of volcanic minerals.
Look for hints of cocoa, stonefruit, currant, and an extra hint of peppery zest from the mineral water. Each sip of this phenomenally-balanced, nutty and smooth coffee is an ode to Pura Vida.
