GREATINGS TO ALL

HI EVERY ONE: This is Gabriel Calderon from El Toledo Coffee Plantation in Atenas Costa Rica. 
Our family Gerardo Calderon, Sole, Raul, Ivette And
Gabriel, Samanta And Isabela are glad to tell everybody
we are healthy first of all, and second that we are opening an on-line shop with our products. 
This idea has always been around. But we have run into the great opportunity of always being able to sell our production locally. Nevertheless, we are all (including all countries of the world) having a harder time economically and humanitarian speaking... we have to be thankful that so far health wise this is not affecting our families, and hope is also not affecting yours. and have to have strength for what’s to come, and how to overcome this problem. We get together and pray for the world to change for the better. 
This is why now we are jumping into this new way of selling our products. We have a humble on-line store that features some of the products we have available in case you want to sup…

El Toledo Coffee
Flavors: El Toledo Coffee flavors are linked to the healthy way of farming. Chemical free for 30 years.In an area that is up to 1000 meters above sea level it shows smoothness and fruity flavors that represent the efforts of the producer to keep a balance from growing to the cup. With smooth citric notes and chocolate flavors in deep roasts. With sweet caramel and fruity characteristics in medium roast.And the light roast gets a very good balance from citricy and nutty flavors.
Growing: El Toledo Coffee farm is using permaculture design combined with biodynamic farming techniques. This means we don't have a monoculture and don't use pesticides to grow our coffee fruits. This creates a very particular microclimate with special conditions to produce our coffee fruit with really good flavors.
Environment importance: Chemical free now for over 30 years and using more than 300 species of trees to shade the coffee; have a huge positive impact on the environment. And b…

HOW TO MAKE A GOOD CUP OF COFFEE BEST COFFE?
How to make a better coffee is not what I am going to talk about, because we are all different!
As we are all different and have different palates, we all need to know better what the differences are among the different methods of preparing and different aspects we can change in any method of brewing!
regarding almost every method of brewing we can change this aspects:
1- Temperature of water. To have a good abstraction at the first time we can use about 95* Celsius. If we think it's to bitter! We can reduce the temperature. Or if we want more bitter it is matter of using more temperature!
2-Amount of coffee and water. 1 liter of water and 60 grams of coffee. Why grams? Well coffee beans get bigger the longer it is roasted. So if you change the type of roast you can still use the same amount of coffee by wait!
this is what makes this opposite of what we all thought! More coffee makes sour and less coffee makes it bitter!

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in the vicinity of Altos de San Isidro, near Atenas, DO NOT miss a chance to take in the El Toledo coffee tour.  It was a life changer for me,  and not just because the coffee was the finest I've come across in my travels. (I worked in the coffee above Captain Cook on the Big Island of Hawaii, years ago. I thought I'd never find coffee to compare with it. Wrong.)

It was that their work there captures the essence of what it means to be not just sustainable, but to nurture and give back to the land itself. I don't know if Gerardo (the father of Gabriel and Raul, husband of Sole, maestro of the fores…
