Danilo Salazar has been growing not only coffee, but also bananas, plantains, and peaches for over 50 years. Danilo is a part of the organization Cafe de Altura de San Ramon that helps over 500 farmers and provides resources they need to sell their coffees at premium prices. Since coffee in Costa Rica isn’t fully washed, there is a bit more fruit in the cup, especially in this unique coffee. In a normal washed coffee, coffee is fermented in large tanks to remove the mucilage, but in Costa Rica, they use a machine that removes the pulp and mucilage simultaneously called a demuciladora.
