Java Rejuvenation

Now that the daylight is getting shorter, my morning cup of joe is a non-negotiable. I'm definitely not alone, since about 83 percent of Americans say they drink coffee according to the National Coffee Association's 2013 online survey.  The buzz about coffee goes well beyond a morning pick-me-up in the spa industry. Java-infused treatments deliver more than just therapeutic benefits. Here are a few Caribbean coffee treatments perfect for relieving stress any time of day:

  • Intimately located on a 30 acre coffee plantation, Costa Rica Marriott Hotel San Jose’s Kuö Spa incorporates beans directly from the property’s plantation into their Costa Rican Coffee Scrub, designed with a mixture antioxidant rich coffee beans in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite. Kuö Spa is designed after indigenous coffee plantations and local volcanoes, providing a unique experience while staying at the elegant 16th century colonial hacienda.
  • Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino’s Zen Spa boasts an earthly coffee-infused treatment for travelers called The Executive Man. Designed to relieve stress from head to toe, the treatment includes a Cappuccino Buff that uses a ground coffee exfoliating scrub, an aromatherapy deep tissue massage, a deep-cleansing facial, the signature gentleman’s manicure, a callus-reducing pedicure as well as a sauna and steam treatment.
