Frozen Products : Cassava *Montaña Azul new product line*

May 12th, 2017  

Sweet Cassava, Yuca Dulce or Manioc, the gluten free root.

Have you tried Costa Rican frozen cassava?. It’s your time now!.

cassava montaña azul

Package of Sweet Cassava from Montaña Azul, chopped and peeled. 

Cassava -or “yuca” in spanish-, is indispensable part of carbohydrate diet for millions of indigenous people and inhabitants living in many parts of South American, Africa and Asian continents.  Is an integral part of the daily diet for millions of people from the Caribbean region, becoming the main ingredient in typical dishes from Latin America and crossing over to the US markets. It is also consumed as snack or as fries, stew-fries, soups and savory dishes all over the tropic regions of the world.

But, what is it? It’s a root from  a perennial plant that grows best under tropical, moist, fertile, and well-drained soils of Costa Rica. We call it “sweet casssava” because is not bitter like other cassavas produced in different parts of the world.  The reason behind of the sweet cassava from Costa Rica, is its soils, its weather and its latitude.

The founder of Montaña Azul Victor Arias Jiménez shares with us his thoughts about this important addition to the success story of more than 15 years exporting canned food and coffee: “we are very glad of launching our Frozen Line of products, since it is a new engine of economic growth for our beloved region of Horquetas de Sarapiquí in the Province of Heredia. This step provides new employment opportunities for the local community, new business for our national suppliers and new alternatives for our international clients.  It’s a beautiful challenge.”

This is a step for Montaña Azul to bring its experience in high quality food, to the frozen sector. Starting with Cassava root and expanding to other tubers, tropical fruits.

The packages of frozen cassava depend on the clients choice: size, weight and label. Let us know what’s on your supermarket’s frozen section. If there is no cassava, tell them this good news!.

Daloö Coffee will take the its first steps in United States at different stores in Queens, Manhattan, and NewJersey. This is part of a focus research that will validate the Boutique Coffee, produced by Agromercadeo El Diamante, a sister company of Montana Azul, responsible of the coffee Division.

The stores of Amish Market, Best Yet Market, Cucina Liberta, Garden of Eden, Gristedes, MortonWilliams, WestSide Market and Zeytuna, will offer to few of its customers to buy from their shelves our 250 g Daloo Coffee for a limited time. We will be having a result of this first study and our boutique coffee might be making it big in the city that never sleeps.

Daloö Coffee is a product dedicated for those coffee lovers that value an extra note of aroma in their coffee without loosing the intense flavor of an excellent roasted bean. Our coffee is collected by hand, dried by the sun and selected by a water process in our facilities.

But… what is this name for a coffee ?. No. Is not from any scandinavian language.

A native costarican culture called “Cabecar” has a language that has successfullybeen recovered, from its extinction. Daloö  belongs to those recovered words and means ” brilliant ” .    Beautiful name huh?

Now that you know… order your Daloö boutiquet coffee 12 pack with different aromas at
