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!
