Carrizal is a community of farms in the Tarrazu Valley in Costa Rica. The smallholders of the area deliver cherry to the Coopetarrazu mill where it is traditionally wet-processed. The cooperative grades the coffee and pays a premium to the communities enrolled in their program for quality. Coffee Supreme has been buying coffee produced by Carrizal for the last 3 years. This support has assisted in growing projects and infrastructure that help improve the services available to the community.
Catimor – Dalat (Single Origin)
At VCR we are a big fan of Catimor beans! They are somehow “judged” as “weird” and “middle-class” in the world of “premium beans” But then, we are emotionally attached to that weird combination of delicacy and robustness, just like how we live! Handpicked from Cau Dat, Da Lat, Catimor beans are perfect for our signature Pour-over coffee. Enjoy!
Cau Dat’s history of coffee has started around three centuries ago. The mountainous region of Cau Dat, Da Lat provides some of the perfect conditions for the Arabica coffee population to thrive. Featuring the altitude above 1,500 meters and the all-year mildly cool temperature, Cau Dat is the heaven for coffee plantation. Harvesting approximately 10 tons of coffee per hectare, Cau Dat coffee has begun to leave its footprint in the global market.
Banner Dark is a crowd pleaser, as delicious brewed using a French Press as it is using a traditional drip/filter method. While the components change, this blend perpetually showcases a heavy body and a sweet, lasting finish with low acidity in the cup.
