Cafe Rivense are experts in naturals. They have been processing them for more than a dozen years and there is no room for fuss here. The fruit dries evenly, on long tables covered with shade. It kinda looks like a tomato greenhouse in grandma's garden. But grandma said she would make it a few dozen feet long, because why not?


We visited this beautiful farm, nestled among the greenest mountains of central Costa Rica in 2021 for the first time.. Well - the family business of the Ureña family, where everything runs like a Swiss watch. Vista al Chirripo is the highest plantation on the farm, where a small wooden cabin can be found right next to H17 trees, with windows facing the highest peak in the country. It's impossible to describe that place in words, but if you want to impress someone the most in your life, take that person right there and wait for the sunrise together over a cup of coffee. Just don't kill the mood with a question about the hand grinder settings, we beg!


A hybrid of catuai and an Ethiopian varietal. Well, this was my favorite coffee of all the tables during a visit to Costa Rica last year. It was cupped blind, and now mind you: there was a truly outstanding geisha standing next to it, and I put H17 on a pedestal anyway. Quintessential elegance and balance. The texture, as if you were licking velvet. The sweetness of the fruit intertwines with a visit to the florist shop. With such coffees you always smile!


The coffee is packed in a brown jar made of PET, 100% recyclable or reusable. In case you're thinking "oh no, plastic!", bear in mind that standard coffee packaging is also made of plastic (and a few other materials, making it often harder to recycle). We also thought about glass, but it's heavier, more expensive, breakable and, wait for it, has the same or greater (sic!) environmental impact! A plastic jar turns out to be pretty eco-friendly, just remember to put it in the right container, or find a creative way to reuse it at home.
