Hand Made in beautiful Costa Rica especially for you
The traditional way to brew coffee in Costa Rica is by using a “Chorreador”.The name comes from the Spanish verb “chorrear” which means “to drip” it consists of a wooden stand with a hole at the top that holds a cloth bag (bolsita) used as a reusable filter.
One of the most treasured traditions we have in Costa Rica is to drink a driped cup of coffee—un café chorreado. Brewing coffee in a chorreador is more than just brewing coffee—it’s a simple, honest way to make someone feel welcome. Share this tradition with your loved ones. The tradition of “making people feel welcome.”
Beautiful and easy to use:
To prepare a cup in a traditional Costa Rican coffee maker just follow these simple steps:
Place ground coffee inside the reusable filter. Mount the filter on the wooden stand. Place a mug or pitcher under the filter. Slowly pour hot water into the reusable filter. And voila the dripping coffee will fall into your mug or pitcher! *It’s perfectly normal for the cloth filter to turn brown, but this will not affect or change the taste of the coffee actually “La Bolsita” is “cured” with prolonged use, which makes the coffee taste better every day! A filter can be used for as long as 3 months, just rinse it in warm water after each use without any kind of soap.
