Greetings from the village of San Marcos, Costa Rica.
That’s right – after the success of Roast Station Indonesia in 2013 – we have been able to bring the Roast Station Project half-way round the world and have already set up operations in the middle of one of the most amazing coffee-growing regions on the planet – Tarrazu, Costa Rica.
Since arriving in Costa Rica, Java Nomad has partnered with 22-year coffee sourcing and trading veteran Jose Urenas of YouTradeCoffee to source another amazing single-origin coffee for you.
Our small lot of one-of-a-kind coffee we uncovered is from the “La Pastora” estate here in Tarrazu. This unique Arabica coffee is grown high on mountain slopes at 1,800 meters above sea-level, resulting in a hard, full-flavored bean.
An Entirely LOCAL Process
The coffee cherries are from the most recent picking and were processed at a local owner’s micro-mill using the pulped natural process – helping the bean to retain even more flavors from the cherry as it dried. The beans were then stored in parchment for at least 22 days to fully develop.
The hulling and roasting of the beans were also done locally – I worked together with the owner of a mid-sized gas roaster as we took these beans right to the edge of second crack to ensure an amazing cup.
Then, your beans were immediately packaged and sealed (by the same local family) in bags with one-way degassing valves to ensure they get to you FRESH.
And what a cup of coffee this is…
You’ll open the bag and be hit by a strong aroma of chocolate brownies and peanut butter – seriously!
Once brewed, the taste of the coffee is sweet and buttery. Yes, the chocolate and peanut butter flavors are still there – but you’ll also discover some delicious citric notes as well. A balanced and exciting cup of coffee with a flavor that continues to linger after each sip.
Ready For Yours?
We’re so happy being able to bring another unique source-roasted single-estate coffee direct to you – in return for bitcoins.
