FROM OUR HANDS TO YOUR CUP

We are Europe's emerging supplier of origin coffee directly from the producer in Costa Rica. Our partnership with Gaia Artisan Coffee aids them in their goal of continued coffee excellence, while also encouraging opportunities to expand their farms, technology, businesses and knowledge in a rapidly changing international market.

 

It is our main mission to help farmers and their families by raising the bar and lead them on their journey to conquer the international market. We work hand in hand by building a bridge between the producer and international roasters, and foster long- lasting trade relationships.

THE farms

The farms are located in the West Central Valley under the most ideal conditions, at an altitude of 1300-1800 masl. It is an area of fertile lands of volcanic origin which gives special characteristics to the coffee, optimal acidity-body balance, aroma and an identity of origin.

 

In the cup, one can usually discover tastes of chocolate and honey, all the way down to the elegant complexity of flowers and fruits like mandarin, apricot and even tropical fruits like papaya and pineapple.

By taking part in #jointheboat, Grounds Costa Rica will be donating 5 euro cents per kilo purchase to our coffee reforestation program. We will be donating at least 800 F1 hybrid coffee plants to the farmer community of Naranjo. Hopefully you can join us on our trip to Costa Rica in 2022 to make this donation together!

 

Many Costa Rican plantations have been affected by coffee leaf rust and this has been threatening the source of income of many farmers. F1 hybrids are an exciting development in the coffee industry, they combine high cup quality with high resistance to disease. Experimental varieties like these offer a great opportunity for the future of coffee farming in a changing climate.
