Grind Types Chart


Whole Bean

The freshest and most preferred method for those who have a grinder at home.

Coarse (French Press)

This grind size is what you need to make a mean french press or a smooth well extracted cold brew.

Medium/Coarse (Chemex)

If you are brewing that Mayorga magic on a Chemex this is the grind size for you. This grind is also great for units with metal filters.

Medium (Drip)

If you are brewing on any home brewer or a flat bottom pourover system (Kalita Wave) this is the grind size that was made for you.

Fine/Medium

This is our favorite size grind for anyone using a cone pourover system with a paper filter (Hario v60, Melitta, Clever, Beehouse). Our baristas call this one, "the sweet spot."

Fine

If you are using a vacuum pot, siphon or refillable k-cup pod you want this grind size for optimal brewing.

Espresso

This grind is suitable for home and commercial espresso machines and stove top espresso, like a moka pot.

Product Description

Costa Rica is a truly unique country, hosting more than 5% of the world’s biodiversity even though its landmass only takes up .03% of the planets surface. Around 25% of the country’s land area is in protected national parks and protected areas, which gives it the largest percentage of protected areas in the world.

We source our Organic Costa Rican coffee from a small family-owned farm called Las Lajas. Nestled against the looming Poás volcano, sits the small town of Sabanilla de Alajuela where the Chacón family operate the mill.

One of the most iconic Costa Rican crafts is the colorful oxcart wheels. We have a giant colorful oxcart wheel with a very intricate design in the Mayorga office, and it brightens up the entire office. Costa Ricans’ positive attitude makes us always want to come back. They even say “pura vida” or “pure life” as both a greeting and a goodbye. Pura vida!
