Celebrating International Women’s Month

Celebrating the trailblazers, the fighters, the loving, the nurturing, the teachers, the activists, the humorous, the rebels, and all women around the world.

As much as we make progress, there is still disparity and barriers that need to fall for women to be fully accepted and valued. This is a conscious and constant work that requires our full participation. 

The coffee world is one of those industries where still a lot needs to be done, to change the unconscious bias against women. This is the reason why we have created a coffee set to share more about women leaving their mark in the coffee industry.

We also will donate part of the profits to the International Women In Coffee Alliance. This is a non-profit that empowers women in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives; and to encourage and recognize the participation of women in all aspects of the coffee industry.

My ask to you is, that you keep sharing with your network about the work we do to increase our purchases from women farmers. That you share about the invaluable work these women are doing at origin, and last but not least, share the choices they are making by dedicating their lives to learn, work and protect the legacy of their families.

Tag us on your post in social media with @ticoroasters #ChooseToChallenge to celebrate International Women Month!

This coffee set is a tribute to women. You will find two coffees from Costa Rica and one from Mexico.

Finca San Luis is a fully washed coffee from the famous Tarrazu region in Costa Rica, produced by Daniela Gutierrez and her family. 

Helsar Santa Lucia Patio Helsar comes from the West Valley region in Costa Rica. Produced by Mariana Perez and her family. This is an impressive natural coffee.

Bella Vista Mayan Women comes from highlands of Chiapas, Mexico. Produced by a group of over 70 indigenous women farmers, exported and distributed by Rosalba Cifuentes of Mayan Harvest. 

Did you know that Tico Coffee Roasters is a woman owned business?

If we haven’t met yet, my name is Mariana 🙂 I was born in the coffee lands in Costa Rica. I grew up smelling the scent of the coffee flowers that bloomed with the first rain in April and the sweet aroma of the picked coffee cherries during the harvest season that started around November every year.

That beautiful landscape and the freedom we all had, the friendships, sharing amongst family and neighbors. Eating lunch under a tree in the farm while telling jokes, and sharing that anticipated cup of coffee in the afternoon; are memories that will forever live in my mind and my heart.

This is what Tico Coffee Roasters is about. The unique experience that empowers, protects and nourishes lives from farm to cup.

Costa Rica Finca San Luis

We are super excited to bring back Finca San Luis from our good friend Daniela Gutierrez in Tarrazu, Costa Rica. Despite all the challenges with COVID-19, we were able to secure this lot thanks to our relationship with Daniela. And we have to say this years harvest is just amazing! It exceeded all our expectations and we hope you will love it as much as we do!

Finca San Luis and the La Montaña de Tarrazu Micromill is a family business, overseen by two sisters, Daniela and Tatiana Gutierrez, having taken over day-to-day operations from their father, Jorge.

Daniela handles day-to-day operations and is passionate about specialty coffee. She has learned about barista skills as well as roasting, and enjoys drinking the coffees that La Montaña produces. The sisters’ father is still involved in the farm, but the sisters are working in the commercialization of the coffee.

Why you should choose Water Processed Decaf

Millions of Americans drink decaf coffee to satisfy their desire for coffee without the jitter of caffeine. But is decaffeinated coffee really free of caffeine, and why do some of them taste boring or even flat? And what about chemical residue in decaffeinated coffee?

Here is the truth about decaffeination. FDA regulations specify that for coffee to bear a decaffeinated label, 97 percent of the original caffeine must be removed from the beans. The coffee we use here at Tico Coffee Roasters is actually decaffeinated to European Standards which requires 99% caffeine removal.
