Product Details

12 oz bag

In 2017, Ritual visited farmers we work with deep in the Río General river valley. While here, we were introduced to the Torres Valverde family, who had their own working family farm and micromill just outside of town. It is situated on the slopes of Cerro Buena Vista, a foothill of Cerro Chirripó, Costa Rica's tallest mountain. At the time, they were a brand new micromill just starting production; while showing much promise, there was still a lot of work to be done. When returning in 2018, we were amazed at the progress that Carlos Luis and his wife Lica accomplished. Furthermore, these farmers have gone above and beyond, earning 2 stars in the coveted Ecological Blue Flag Program, which rewards accomplishments in conservation, with an emphasis on the protection of natural resources, combating climate change, and the improvement of public health of the inhabitants of Costa Rica. In a country where 25% of the land is in protected national parks, this is an especially significant accomplishment- as is the quality of the coffee!

About The Producer

Ritual Coffee Roasters
San Francisco
Ritual has been a pioneer in this delicious shift in coffee consciousness since we opened our doors on Valencia Street in 2005 and started what some call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Our goal then--and our goal now--was to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. We've learned a lot over the years, but the care and attention we lavish on our process is unchanged, including tasting every coffee several times before it goes out to our coffee bars and into your cup.Read more
