THE URENA ROJAS FAMILY...
It has been such a joy visiting the Ureña family these past three years and experiencing Café Rivense del Chirripó tucked in between the mountains of Cerro de la Muerte and Cerro Chirripó. Certainly a beautiful site to behold; the mountain of Chirripó being the tallest in the country. The Ureña's pride and passion for excellent coffee was evident as we toured their farm and operations, after all Régulo Ureña has been at it for 30 years as the third generation in coffee and he’s now leading his sons in the business as well. Their quality is only improving through the years!
The first year we purchased this coffee it was a huge hit among our customers and this year's crop is back and better than ever! Torres Natural is an anaerobic processed coffee, meaning the cherries are placed in a sealed bag for 48 hours before dried on solar covered raised beds. This creates a unique flavor profile that is very juicy and fruity with hints of spice.
