The coffee maiden

The coffee maiden

Yesterday we visited Poás. There is a little town called San Rafael, where the coffee grows all around. 
This is Mario, he took us down to the coffee plantation to take some pictures and video. He was so shy so I had to hide to take his picture. 

The Poás coffee is known as "the maiden" It is gentle to discerning palates.

The purpuse of the visit is about the international coffee day that will be celebrated next week. 
Later I will share more with you about

This coffee is so great!

This coffee is so great!

Wait!. But why?

 

Well,  we have a great weather, lots of rain, big mountains, volcanic soils, gentle people who pick the coffee by hand, people that mastered the roasting time, people who put all the focus to achieve the perfect blend. 
The greatest thing about Costa Rican Coffee is Costa Rica

Besides weddings, I work for a small coffee company here in Costa Rica. I got this assignment of doing a movie to introduce a new coffee blend. 
I feel so proud of the result and I would like to share it with you. Actually, you will see more like this very often at the blog.

The best coffee of the day

The best coffee of the day

I love to have a good cup of coffee in the morning, but I truly believe you have to earn this good coffee. Doing the right thing for somebody, maybe. Probably for them, the best thing is not coffee, maybe is a turn in the lane, a hand to carry something, etc. The best coffee of the day is not the one you drink, is the good thing you did to earn it that make it the best. What goes around, comes around, and coffee is included in the equation.

When you have been working in a coffee company for more than 10 years you can consider yourself a coffee expert?
For me, the answer is YES, of course, you are a coffee expert!. The point is, which part of the coffee have you mastered?. You can be an expert coffee seller, expert roaster, drinker, brewer, blender, picker, grower, cleaner, etc. 
I consider myself an expert coffee expert portrayer :)
