This medium-light roast from Costa Rica is a fantastic cup of coffee. In August 2023, it was awarded a Bronze medal in the ‘Pourover’ category of The Golden Bean, the world’s largest coffee roasting competition.
The Termico Process
The Termico process is a new, experimental coffee process invented by don Luis Campos of Cordillera de Fuego. The process starts with cherries picked at their ripest, allowing them to have a high sugar content and thus feeding the Termico process. The semi-washed coffee is then heated with some of the coffee mucilage left on the bean. The exposure to the heat starts to breakdown the natural sugars of the coffee cherries, partially caramelizing them. This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup.
