Coffee Of The Week: Costa Rica Romelia

June 29, 2015| by CoffeeKind

This week we have chosen a new frontrunner for our Coffee Of The Week, and that is the Costa Rican Romelia from Westbean Coffee Roasters in San Diego, California. This single origin coffee comes from the Palmichal and Santa Ana Mountains, with delicious tasting notes of milk chocolate, buttercream, and sweet pear. The region that it comes from is known for its unique acidity. The story goes that the pioneer coffee grower in the Palmichal region was Manuel Rojas Arias, and he had great success with his coffee farms. When he died, he left these farms to his only sister Romelia, who continued to cultivate exceptional coffee as her brother did, and this is how the Costa Rican Romelia got its name.

June 1, 2015| by CoffeeKind

There are many well-known myths about coffee, but more often than not they are simply that: myths. We’ve done our research so that we can accurately inform you on which coffee myths are true and which are not. This week we are here to happily let you know that one of the most infamous coffee myths, that coffee dehydrates you, is false.

 

It has recently been studied and proven that coffee and other caffeinated beverages contribute to the body’s total daily water intake, which leads to more hydration similar to the hydrating effect of water.
