Costa Rica Rivense H17 Natural

The H17 cultivar used in this coffee is the first in a suite of climate-adaptive hybrid cultivars from the coffee pioneers at Café Rivense. Not only is this coffee a step towards sustainability, it’s also incredibly delicious. Mellow notes of dried strawberry intermingles with soft florals and a citrus brightness. With a clean mouthfeel and delicate body, this coffee feels infused with elegance.

ORIGIN AND PARTNERSHIP

Coffee Pioneers Shaping the Future

Régulo Gerardo Ureña, owner and producer at Café Rivense, has spent the last seven years testing cultivars bred to be climate-adaptive and specialty grade. The goal has been to introduce new cultivars into production that perform well in the cup, as well as in the field. The H17 is a Catuai and Ethiopia wild-type hybrid, showing high potential for quality among these adaptive cultivars.

Roasting Profile

Small Batch Coffee, Fresh-Roasted Daily to Order

We employ the Japanese notion of Kaizen in our roasting practice. This idea of “good change” or “continuous improvement” drives our team to keep daily records of their tastings, always chasing better, more delicious, more consistent coffees.We roast small batches on Loring machines around the world, so our coffee tastes not only luminous, but reliably consistent, from Tokyo to New York.
