The Termico Process
The Termico process is a new, experimental coffee process invented by don Luis Campos of Cordillera de Fuego. The process starts with cherries picked at their ripest, allowing them to have a high sugar content and thus feeding the Termico process. The semi-washed coffee is then heated with some of the coffee mucilage left on the bean. The exposure to the heat starts to breakdown the natural sugars of the coffee cherries, partially caramelizing them. This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup.

Luis Eduardo Campos
The owner and founder of Cordillera de Fuego, don Luis Campos, purchased his farm in 1984 shortly after graduating from university. Over the past 10 years don Luis has been experimenting with different coffee processing methods such as natural, honeys, thermic (termico) and anaerobic. In addition to quality innovation the farm and wet mill joined the national group NAMA (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions) in 2017 with the objective as a group to reach reduction emissions of greenhouse gases within the coffee sector. One of the biggest projects that Cordillera de Fuego has undertaken was the installation of solar panels, which now supply more than 50% of the energy for the wet mill.

Origin Report
Costa Rica coffees sell at a premium. The country has a reputation for delivering high quality and for innovation – a winning combination. Costa Rica’s quality socio-economic infrastructure programs such as universal healthcare, high education levels, sophisticated agronomy and research, and well-regulated agricultural sustainability programs certainly contribute to the high cost of coffee. Additionally, when coffee roasters buy Costa Rican green coffee, producers receive nearly 80% of the FOB value, guaranteed. Read more in our Costa Rica Green Coffee Origin Report.
