Cafe Ceres is the name of a micromill located in the mountains of Terrazú, a region south of Costa Rica’s capital San Jose. Cafe Ceres was established by Stephanny Fernandez Elizondo and her mother Alexandra in 2019. The mother, daughter duo have worked together for years preparing for this endeavour of owning and operating a mill, their aim is to achieve constant growth by focusing on improvements in quality each day. They also prioritise sustainability in everything they do and are currently working towards Bandera Azul ecological certification. This particular coffee is from Los Quernados, a farm which is also owned by the two.
This 100% Catuai was processed very carefully to avoid the defects honey processed lots can sadly be prone to. The coffee cherries were sorted via floatation to remove underripe and overripe fruit and were then fermented for 72 hours then pulped, before being fermented for an additional 48 hours. Finally the coffee was dried on raised beds for 14 days while being moved every two hours to ensure uniform drying.
Having this coffee in the roastery brings us much joy as it was a firm favourite with the whole team last year so we’re very pleased to have it return!
