Probably the only thing that could enhance our fabulous award-winning Nectar coffee is the fruit from the same plant combined in perfect measure, which somehow enhances the profile to reach new heights. We love when an expresso fan comes to our offices and we run a sample of Nectar espresso and then hand him or her a nectar with Cascara. Their eyes light up and the reaction is "What just happened?" We're not sure if we know, but it makes sense to combine the fruit and the bean and go off to the races. It's just wonderful.
Costa Rica Nectar is possibly our all-time favorite Arabica coffee, and when you infuse it with 25% Cascara (coffee fruit) some magic happens. Nectar has wonderful caramel tones and the Cascara coffee fruit somehow completes the taste profile without really calling attention to itself. When you can add something to a Golden-Bean-Award-Winning coffee and actually make it better, you have something!
8 ounces, pre-ground for espresso. The Cascara flakes are not super-fine but they brew perfectly in this combination. Plays well with cream and sugar, as do all Costa Rican coffees. Don't take our word for it, ask the farmer! That's how he drinks it. And in our last trip down there, we watched him add Cascara-infused Nectar to his own coffee shop menu after we showed him what we were doing.
8 ounces, ground for espresso only.
