At some point in your life you have probably tried Dark Roast coffee. Here, we’re sharing how this delectable beverage was created. Café Britt started with nothing more than an idea and a garage, but our founder Steve Aronson, saw an opportunity to use Costa Rica’s high quality beans and expert roasters to revolutionize the industry.
Don Steve, as we like to call him, convinced the Costa Rican government to reserve a portion of the country’s coffee beans for locals and visitors to enjoy. Our first blend? A dark roast, of course.
A blend of beans from the Central and Western Valleys of Costa Rica, this roast has since become one of our most famous beverages. The mix of sweet, acidic beans from the Central Valley and the dense, full-bodied beans of the Western Valley results in a blend so delicious it’s been dubbed “the flavor of Costa Rica.”
The blend is dark roasted to highlight the rich, chocolaty aroma and perfectly balanced flavors. It’s our darkest roast, and one that we’re extremely proud of. Thirty years from our company’s creation, it’s still our most famous blend, but we have expanded our selection to now include many other “flavors of Costa Rica.”
