Started in February of 2004, this privately owned business offers its customers a high quality product. After sampling dozens of coffee beans from various roasteries both in-state & out-of-state, Barbara decided on a local roaster located in the Denver area that uses the true European method of roasting. All of the beans purchased by A Latte More Than Coffee are quality 100% Arabica beans. Irazu Estate beans get their start in the rich lava soil of Costa Rica, where there is no artificial fertilizer used and the growing beans are nurtured in the shade trees that populate the area. These shade trees are grown to sustain the natural Costa Rican eco-system, protect the migratory homes of birds, and act as a natural defense against erosion. The freshly picked coffee beans are then sun-dried, not chemically processed, to preserve the flavor and moisture inside the bean. All of this pampering produces a 100% organic coffee bean.
