A coffee worthy of competing with the best
La Catarata is the coffee I competed with at the 2022 Brewers Cup - and it's probably my personal favorite coffee ever.
This is a brand new crop of the bean I competed with last year. The flavor profile has changed a bit since last season, but I thought you might enjoy brewing from my competition recipe from last year. Let me know how it works for you and if you were successful in making adjustments.
You probably already know them - because we love talking about this family farm. This coffee was produced by the Ureña family from the Chirriopó region of Costa Rica.
We have an excellent personal relationship with the family - and we are constantly surprised by how great their coffee tastes.
