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.
