Seasonal Blend - Pura Vida

Introducing our current Seasonal Blend - 'Pura Vida'.

Pura Vida encapsulates the Costa Rican lifestyle. It means 'pure life', but it's more than just a phrase, it's a way of life. With 85% of this blend coming from Hacienda Pilas, Costa Rica, we thought it's the perfect name to tell sensory 'Tale of Two Coffee Worlds'.

With 'Pura Vida,' we're delighted to share the story and the flavors of two exceptional coffee-growing regions – Colombia and Costa Rica. This blend is a testament to the dedication and craftsmanship of our partner producers who have poured their hearts into creating a unique coffee experience.

Colombian Innovation: Jairo Arcila, a third-generation coffee producer from Colombia, is the mastermind behind the Colombian component of our 'Pura Vida' blend. His meticulous approach is evident in the cultivation of Castillo beans, grown at elevations of 1400-1450 meters above sea level. What sets this coffee apart is the innovative 72-hour anaerobic fermentation process, with the infusion of Passion Fruit and Wine Yeast. This technique creates a distinct organoleptic profile, highlighted by notes of Passion Fruit, Lime, and Panela. The result is a beautifully balanced coffee with a remarkable cupping score of 88.50 points.

Costa Rican Excellence: Our Costa Rican contribution comes from Hacienda Pilas, located in the West Valley's Naranjo area. Managed by Eduardo Gurdian Pacheco, a seasoned coffee agronomist, this coffee estate stands out for its commitment to quality and sustainability. Coffee varieties like Catuai and Catimor are meticulously hand-picked and washed, offering a taste experience that boasts notes of Chocolate, Honey, and Dried Fruit & Nuts. Hacienda Pilas is certified by Rain Forest Alliance and is dedicated to environmentally friendly and socially responsible coffee production.

The 'Pura Vida' Blend: 'Pura Vida' represents the fusion of these two remarkable coffee worlds. In each sip, you'll find a harmonious blend of Colombian innovation and Costa Rican excellence. It's more than just a coffee; it's a celebration of tradition, innovation, and a deep connection to the land. This blend tells a story of a shared love for coffee and a commitment to delivering a remarkable experience.
