Strictly Hard Bean means the coffee must be grown above 1300 metres indeed this coffee is grown as high as 1700 metres. The varieties grown are Catuai and Caturra. The Guairá Morada or Cattleya Orchid, Cattleya skinneri is the Costa Rican National Flower. The Cattleya Project by Co-op Naranjo evolved to produce larger lots of superior quality coffee that is traceable and sustainable. The Co-operative works with agronomists and the Rainforest Alliance to produce a lovely bean, which we have darkly roasted making a strong, full bodied flavoursome cup. I shared my first one with a neighbour who thoroughly enjoyed it.
You will receive 95 grams of these roasted beans for £5.00 this will allow you to make between 19 and 38 cups of coffee, depending on cup size. Five grams per cup, the quantity of coffee used will be quite personal so these are guidelines only. This works out at between twenty-six and thirteen pence per cup. We also sell larger quantities of this coffee at a more ‘economical’ rate, the price per cup will therefore be lower.
