Heritage Blend: a legacy of excellence

It’s almost our favorite time of the year. That’s right—coffee harvest time in Costa Rica! December is the peak month for most of the plantations where we source our beans. During harvest time, the streets of rural Costa Rica are filled with trucks carting off fresh coffee for processing, leaving the rich, inviting scent of ripe fruit wafting through town.

We love that this time of joy and plenty coincides with the holidays, because it gives us the excuse for twice the celebration! It also gives us the chance to share the festive spirit with our customers, through our annual Holiday Blend.

This year, as always, we have carefully selected beans for a blend that will suit your holiday meals perfectly—no matter where you celebrate them.

December in Costa Rica

The holidays in Costa Rica coincide with the coffee harvest. In fact, many years ago, school holidays were designed so that young people could contribute to the harvest on the family coffee farm.

These days, local families take advantage of the weather in Costa Rica during the holidays to go to the beach, as these months are also the country’s dry season.
