Sisters Adriana and Marcela Porras have over eight years of experience making the highest specialty coffees. They offer single-origin coffees from Costa Rica – no blends or mixtures! They use coffee directly from small farms and local families, making sure every part of their process is fair and sustainable.
Holistic therapist Andrea Becerra Kriebel started experimenting with therapeutic skin care products at her parent’s home. Fifteen years later, her company has its own lab and gives jobs to over 20 people, most of which are women.
Aromas obtained a B Corp certification, which makes it a carbon neutral company. They plant trees along the Miravalles Volcano natural corridor. The company also obtained the Costa Rican national certificate of Essential Costa Rica, becoming one of the top leading beauty and natural skin care national representatives.
Aromas’ essential oils have been certified as organic by the USDA and as Quality International Assurance. Their dream is to have organic farms all throughout Latin America.
And you have the opportunity to buy their products during this live experience, including a one-of-a-kind coffee vanilla body scrub!
