During our coffee trip to Costa Rica in early 2023, we visited the Don Alexis plantation and met the Ramirez Navarro family. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed a delicious homemade delicacy along with a cup of their homegrown coffee. The Ramirez family pays attention to everything they do, working in harmony with nature on their plantation to cultivate the highest quality coffee. They use various fermentation techniques and have their own coffee roaster to test their experimental coffees. The plantation is located in the Los Santos region and has had its own processing station since 2015, allowing them to focus more on producing higher quality coffee. In our opinion, they have succeeded remarkably well!

This coffee is processed using the Thermic Aerobic fermentation method. Ripe red coffee cherries from the Catuai coffee plant are picked and wrapped in black plastic sheeting before being placed on a drying bed in a greenhouse. The high temperatures in the greenhouse and the wrapping result in an aerobic fermentation process wherein the sugars in the coffee cherries begin to break down and partially caramelize. This results in ‘funky’ fruity flavors and gives a long, clear finish. Together, this makes the coffee a true fruity sensation, one you must taste and won’t soon forget! Thank you, Don Alexis, for this delicious coffee!
