For the Coffee Snob: Finca Rosa Blanca, Costa Rica
The third wave coffee trend has taken the world by storm, inspiring curious palates to go beyond burnt dark roasts and dive into nuanced brews that are carefully sourced from ethical estates and farms. This Central American property is taking coffee education to higher levels, offering coffee plantation tours, roasting demos, and a cupping experience, where guests can learn first-hand how coffee buyers grade and rate coffee. You’ll want to be alert to take in the sights too; the property is a real stunner, nestled amidst 30 acres of coffee fields and gardens of native foliage—a true taste of Pura Vida indeed.
