Hi di Hi,

(For those who don't like the url, it's just commercial guys, sorry)
Soon a couple more blog posts about it. And official launch - just testing now.
First a little explanation of the coffee that went out to the first members this week :
The Costa Rica Tarrazu San Rafael :
Due south of San José you will find the majestic mountains of Tarrazú. Sheltered between the Pacific Coast, the Central Valley and the high peaks of the country´s central mountain range, Tarrazú is one of the world's most famous coffee growing regions. This magnificent area, fondly known as the Area of the Saints, is considered to yield the most superb Strictly Hard Bean coffees in Costa Rica, grown at altitudes between 3,650 to 5,900 feet.
The rich volcanic soil, the high altitude, as well as the perfect combination of sunlight, temperature, and precipitation provide the essential components to produce an exceptional coffee.
International cuppers have recognized San Rafael RZ Tarrazú during its 150 years of existence as the best coffee of the Tarrazú region. This cup exemplifies a true Tarrazú with its deep aroma, vibrant and lemony acidity and smooth finish.
Special varieties or types : Caturra, Catuai
What do we taste :
Zoethout - liquorice
Lichte runderbouillon - light beef broth
Heldere cup - bright cup
