From Cherry to Bean: A Coffee Story

We love videos and slide shows, they really share the experience of being there and seeing something first-hand. In this case, we have put together a very brief slide show from our trip to Costa Rica last year, when we followed along with the "From Seed to Green" course at Down to Earth Farm in Providencia de Dota, Tarrazu.

The great thing about Down to Earth Farm is that every step of coffee growing, from planting seedlings to milling the beans, is done right there on this relatively small farm. The only process taken to a separate location is the hulling, which is removing the hard "shell" around the bean, and the sorting afterwards to separate out the hulls and perform an initial selection process on the beans.

Everything else is right here. So if you have ever wanted to know more about how coffee comes to be a beverage, click on! Just click on the pictures to advance the show, or click on the "Previous" and "Next" text below the pictures to go forward or back.
