In Costa Rica, coffee is grown almost exclusively above 1,300 meters above sea level, on rich and well-drained soil of volcanic origin. The Tournon area produces 40% of the coffee processed in Costa Rica. The abbreviation SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) indicates the quota at which the coffee is grown, but it is also an indication of high-level coffee and careful selection.
For this evaluation, the coffee was extracted into espresso, at 93 ° with an extraction of 25ml in 25 seconds. The degassing of the coffee was 48 hours.
The cream is a light hazelnut color, with brownish hues. Among the aromas it can be perceived (especially in very young coffees) of apple and dates, up to the sensation of fresh walnut. On the palate, a truly sweet coffee stands out, with the usual acidity of washed but decidedly fine coffees.

The Caffèlab project was born as a collective, a group of people with different skills, different past and present but the same passion: quality coffee.
The world of coffee is changing. In recent years we have been witnessing a strong cultural evolution of coffee. Some consumers are beginning to realize that this product can be a universe of varieties and aromas and that a conscious taste can give us extraordinary sensations.
We wanted to make our blends through experimentation, because looking for quality does not mean fossilizing on a taste, but going in search of it. We have also started to use different extraction methods, because coffee is not just about espresso. Finally, we understood that roasting can totally change the taste of a coffee and that you can also experiment by roasting your own coffee, at home, at different levels, with different profiles.
This is why we have created Caffèlab: to allow you to create your own personalized coffee blend, through our configurator, making available the best single origins and professional equipment.
