Since the introduction of coffee in Costa Rica at the end of the 18th century, a gold-grain economy has been promoted. Coffee has become part of the culture and tradition. Costa Rica is one of the leaders in the production of specialty coffee. He has stood out for his innovation in the development of varieties and production techniques but also for his presence in the barista championships and for the worldwide exposure as a producer.
However, we are only in the first years of seeing specialty coffee shops appear in the capital. They are born with the third wave where users want to be clear about the origin of the products and want to live experiences through consumption.
The Artlee cafeteria is a space proposed as an unpretentious place where the focus is to carry out a unique experience to introduce the students of the area to the consumption of specialty coffee through various preparations. The minimalist architecture represents the opportunity to create a simple space and reflecting in this case the focus towards the Latte Art where the materials, the light and the space leave the user and the coffee as protagonists.
