Little Devil Costa Rica 

Chirripó is one of our favorite coffee producing regions in Costa Rica year after year. Each year, the residents of this region celebrate a New Year’s festival called “Fiesta de los Diablitos”, or “Party of the Little Devils”, in order to commemorate the resistance of the Boruca, the local indigenous people, against their colonizers. During Fiesta de los Diablitos, the participants wear devil masks to represent the Boruca resisting their Spanish colonizers, who are represented as bulls. To celebrate the spirit of the Boruca’s resistance, we have named this coffee from Chirripó Little Devil. Featuring a white honey processed coffee, Little Devil has the sweetness of cocoa, floral aromatics, and a mellow citric brightness to round it all out.

Farm to Cup Story 

Chirripó is one of Costa Rica’s primary coffee growing regions, and is home to its highest peak. It is here that Joiner Alvarado and his family own and operate their farm Los Cedros, as well as their own mill, Joi Café, in the La Piedra de Rivas microregion. Joi Café is a relatively new operation. In fact, the Alvarado’s coffee trees are only about five to eight years old—little devils themselves—but with young plants producing fruit that tastes this good, we’re positive that the Alvarado family will have tasty coffee for many years to come, and we’re pleased to be working with them for our second year in a row. In a cup of Little Devil, you’ll taste the sweetness of cocoa paired with the complexity of nuts, coffee pulp aromatics, and a subtle, yet zingy lemon-citrus undertones to round it all out.

 

This particular lot from Los Cedros is 100% Red Catuai and was processed using a white honey method. The white honey method leaves some of the sticky, sugary mucilage on the parchment while the coffee dries. This type of processing allows the coffee to develop fruitiness and sweetness that is akin to natural processed coffee, while retaining a cleanliness of flavor similar to washed process coffees.

 

Grab a bag of Little Devil today and resist your three o’clock slump.
