Got such a sweet card from Costa Rica.... I must say, I'm only a occasional coffee drinker, sometimes one cup a day with lunch.
....But here is how you make good old-fashioned coffee for all who's addicted to coffee(its from the back of the card):
Put 6 tsp of fresh-ground coffee in a cloth filter and wood base it is called a "chorreador"). Heat 2 cups of water and remove just before it comes to boil. Pour very slowly over the coffee to release its aroma and flavor. You'll feel like you are walking through a field of ripe coffee bushes....:-)

In Costa Rica coffee is not just a crop, it's an integral part of life. You can smell it brewing at all hours- in homes, at work, in the countryside and in the city.
