Coffee of the Month Club

Coffee of the Month Club! Available in 3 month, 6 month, 12 month or until cancelled

 

You are ushered outdoors and toward cafe tables stationed beside heaters beneath tents. Here, in
the shade of the buildings, you feel February creep up over you, brisk and shivery as you are
used to. Don’t be too bristled. Lean back, tip your head up: in the sunlight—luminous and
arching like a sheet thrown out across the sky—you are warm like there’s a bulb humming from
within the cage of your chest.

 

Waiters in chartreuse uniforms deliver silver trays topped with petite cups of cappuccinos (but
only before twelve) cradled by sugar packets and tiny chocolates and plates of cornetti. You will
try to reply in Italian, and they might understand you, or they will ask you very nicely not to
bother, and you will be humbled and slightly humiliated. Here is the scene: your slumped
shoulders and your nervous posture and the heat of the espresso and the taste of the chocolate
and the man pacing the sidewalk and the American music circa 1980s thumping and traffic
streaming like the water from the fountains and everything is a church, and there are postcards
for sale in the churches, and portable chargers for sale on the bridges and seagulls on the angels,
they are launching off the angels.

 

But 6000 miles away, coffee will often come in larger cups (drip drip drip), consumed
haphazardly and with inattention at traffic lights and at office desks and behind the newsprint. In
February, you should stop (sip sip sip); you might find yourself considering your coffee, which
has traveled an awful long way from Costa Rica. Pollard’s Coffee of the Month Club’s February

offering, Santa Elena, may taste familiar to seasoned customers, however this month the beans
come naturally processed in contrast to the pulped natural honey process of our typical Costa
Rica origin. The result is a fruitier, even more vibrant finish.

 

Owned by our friend Luzia Trujillo, the mountainous coffee farm that produces the Santa Elena
beans rests south of San Jose. Wet and lush and cradled by the Talamanca Sierra, the beans are
harvested through the late fall and winter, providing elegant tastes of apricot, jasmine, and milk
chocolate.
