Re: Heart of the Centrals

1st Roast/1st Post

... waiting for us, was an apparently new-never-used Air Crazy for $4. (Karma?) We brought it home, read more threads, then popped in a shy 1/2 cup of Costa Rican beans. First crack ("Hey, cool, there it is") came at about 2:30 or so, then lots of FC, then relative silence, and at around ...

Re: Heart of the Centrals

Re: Heart of the Centrals

The newer lots we are offering from Costa Rica are definite favorites here at SMHQ. The Roger Solis La Casona in Particular! The fruit notes are very prominent and full of sweetness. These two newer coffees are from the the Tarrazu region. ...

The Chorreador

Has anybody used a chorreador before? Any tips, tricks, instructions? The mother in law brought me this beautiful one with matching wood mug from Costa Rica, and I can't wait to try it out!

Re: ROK espresso maker

... I'd like to take advantage and thank Sweet Marias as my first order made me more than happy. I just used my ROK to pull a shot of freshly roasted Costa Rica Familia Bonilla - Beneficio which happens to be one the best espressos I've ever had! I find it weird that SM thinks this machine doesn't ...
