Green Dragon
Green Dragon   Costa Rica

Sometimes it’s hard to find the right words to express ourselves. So when we get ahold of the right phrase or drink a coffee that gets us in the mood to approach life with the vigor that is needed, it’s something to get excited about. In Costa Rica, people use the phrase “pura vida” to express a range of things. Whether it’s a response to asking how someone’s day is, a salutation, or an expression of happiness, “pura vida” is a statement to the world that relays a passion for life and happiness in a way that translation fails to. “Pura vida” does not just mean “pure life”, as it translates, it is the pure life—it embodies the notion of living life with authenticity. When we think of what the pure life means to us here at Stone Creek Coffee, our friends at Microbeneficio Cerro Paraguas (MICEPA) in Chirripó, Brunca, Costa Rica always come to mind, which is why we decided to feature their coffee in Costa Rica Green Dragon. Costa Rica Green Dragon is composed of a double fully washed lot from the farmers of MICEPA that was dried on raised beds and patios once it reached the mill. With notes of cashew, mandarin orange, and cocoa powder, Green Dragon is a treat that’s sure to get you reflecting on how sweet life really is.

Farm to Cup Story 

 

Once again, we’re grateful and proud to bring you coffee from MICEPA. Microbeneficio Cerro Paraguas (MICEPA) is a small cooperative located in the remote region of Chirripó, Brunca, in southern Costa Rica. With notes of creamy cashew, mandarin orange, and cocoa powder, Green Dragon Costa Rica is the perfect way to celebrate the good life.

 

MICEPA is a collaboration between eight families who collectively own 15 farms in the region. It is overseen by Rigoberto Araya Blanco and José Ureña Ulloa, but each of the farmers that work with the mill play an important role in its operation. There is no doubt when you meet the farmers of MICEPA that they love what they do, and are happy to share their crops with people who love them.

 

Over the past five years, we have seen the coffees from MICEPA transform from mediocre to exceptional, and that’s a product that we want to get behind and support. This partnership is the Farm to Cup mission actualized, which is why we’ve chosen to bring this particular lot to you year-round. We’re sure that when you drink a cup of Green Dragon Costa Rica, you’ll realize that you’re living it, too. ¡Pura Vida!
