The WestBean Coffee Roasters

San Diego, CA

A cup of coffee is beautiful in its simplicity. However the process from seed to cup is far from simple. It's an unbelievable result stemming from growing, farming, processing & sorting the fruit. Every step of the process will influence the end taste. By respecting the overall process and how the green coffee made it into our hands, we make it our responsibility to explore each varietal by diving deeper and deeper into the intricacies of the roasting process. It is only when the coffee is skillfully roasted, that it has a chance to be prepared at the highest level, crafting a great cup. To us a cup of black coffee is colorful and complex in its own way. At the WestBean we let our craft speak for itself.

From the cloudy region of the Palmichal rainforest comes our Romelia coffee. This region, bordering the historic zone of Tarrazú, is famous for its unique acidity.

Manuel Rojas Arias was the pioneer coffee grower in the Palmichal region, located on the western slopes of the Escazú Mountains. Many farmers observed the success Don Manuel had with coffee and began to convert their sugar plantations into coffee farms. After Don Manuel’s death, he left his farms to his only sister, Romelia. Thanks to her strength and perseverance, Doña Romelia was able to sustain the quality of her farm’s coffee.
