Floyd - San Ramón i Alajuela | Costa Rica
Single Origin Coffee from Costa Rica
After graduating from university in 1984, Don Luis Eduardo
Campos planted his coffee farm in Piedades del Sur, Alajuela. Don Luis has been constantly pursuing new and innovative ways to improve his coffee production. About ten years ago, he had the idea of an anaerobic fermentation with the objective of extracting the naturally occurring flavours of the coffee through a controled fermentation process. After 6 years of research and tests, his anaerobic coffee was ready.
The unique flavors and tasting notes of the anaerobic and the thermic microlots come from their special processing method. It all starts with handpicking very mature coffee cherries that have a Brix degree (a measurement of sugar content) near 26. Selecting the cherries when they are at their ripest allows them to have a high sugar content and thus feed both the anaerobic and thermic processes.
THE THERMIC PROCESS
After being partially depulped with water, the cherries are heated. The exposure of the mucilage to the heat activates the natural break down of sugars and partially caramelise the beans. This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup

Don Luis is not only an innovative coffee processor, he is also progressive in his farming practices. In 2017, he joined NAMA (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions) whose objective is to dramatically reduce emissions of green house gases within the coffee sector. As part of the NAMA project, Cordillera de Fuego has implemented several small projects to reduce its water usage and increase its efficiency. The biggest project was the installation of solar panels, which supply 100% of the energy of the main office and 50% of the energy of the mill.
