Mystery revealed: Vista del Lago, Costa Rica

Don Vernie is part of the 4th generation of coffee growers in his family. He is passionate about coffee and learnt to work in coffee since he was very young.

For him every stage of growing and processing specialty coffee is important, but the most important for him is the selection and sorting of the right ripe cherries.

That’s why during harvest time the process at Vista del Lago begins with the selection of exclusively ripe cherries to ensure an uniform quality and taste. After the coffee is picked, they bring it immediately to process to prevent the fermentation of the product.  

Expect caramel-like sweetness with tasting notes of Cacao, Black Tea, Dried Fruit, Apple.

  • Origin: Tarrazu, Costa Rica
  • Farmer: Verny Navarro
  • Process: Honey 
  • Varietal: Caturra, Catuai 

 The official competition coffee is brought to you by Nordic Approach.

 Congratulations to our finalists Arvy Uy of Jack Meets Kaldi, Yassie Lorenzo of The Curator, and Taks Arguelles of 93 Cafe for winning this year's Philippine Aeropress Championship!

 Cheers guys!
