Photo Fave: Coffee at Casa Vista, on Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula

Learning to ake Costa Rican coffee in the sock at Casa Vista

Above: Learning to make Costa Rican coffee “in the sock” upon arrival at Casa Vista, on the Nicoya Peninsula.

I have managed to do without many things during travel (a forgotten hairbrush, a single pair of socks…), but coffee is not one of them. As I thought about Costa Rican coffee earlier this week, working on the post “A Visit to Doka Coffee Estate,” I had to smile remembering my REAL introduction to Costa Rican coffee on that trip.

After hours of journeying from Alajuela by highway, by ferry, by dirt and rocky roads (one through the Rio Negro), keeping three generations content as I drove in our rented SUV, we arrived at unforgettable Casa Vista, perched just above the Pacific on a lovely, secluded beach. Greeting us there was my contact, Dahlia Nahome, of CostaRicanVacation.com (shown right). She made sure we had everything we would need to make our stay pleasant – including the critical knowledge of how I would make coffee in the morning.

If you’d like to know how to make “Costa Rican coffee in the sock,” don’t miss tomorrow’s post in honor of National Coffee Day.
