Sugar From Costa Rica’s Mountains

Costa Rica and coffee are practically synonymous. But how much do you know about the country’s caña (sugar cane), which is used for more than making guaro (Costa Rica’s own alcoholic drink).

If you’re persistent enough to make the long trek to top of the village of Santa Juana, you’ll discover sugar cane being harvested the old-fashioned and organic way.

Using the power of the oxen, a trapiche crushes sugar cane to extract its juice. This organic, unbleached, raw cane sugar will make it hard to go back to the white, processed stuff in packets.
Watch as Peter goes hands-on in the Costa Rican sugar-making process in the Hidden Gems of Costa Rica.
