Product Detail

Misty ecosystems and fertile soil. Altitude and legend. The conditions that produce our Poas Volcanic Earth coffee have been nurtured over the millennia on the slopes of Costa Rica’s most-visited active volcano. This is the choice of connoisseurs. The changeable, volcanic climate produces a complex coffee with surprising taste subtleties.

Roasted dark, our Poas has an enticing aroma and sweetness when hot. As it cools, hints of earth and lemon emerge. Each sip produces the same exhilaration as a lucky glimpse of the volcano’s deep-blue crater lake.

 

  • 100% Arabica SHB (Strictly Hard Bean).
  • Kosher certified.

Coffee Connoisseur

The aroma arouses your senses even before the cup touches your lips. Your journey has begun to the edge of Costa Rica’s active Poas Volcano. Nature’s volatility — which played a key role in creating this lushly fertile landscape —­ also helped give birth to the exceptional coffee of this Central Highlands region. 

While steam rises from your cup, reminiscent of the active crater, pay homage to the smoking mountain that for millennia has spilled precious minerals into the surrounding land creating extraordinarily fruitful soil. Your palate is not dreaming. A touch of the smoky, volcanic soil has imparted its flavor into the coffee beans and is deliciously juxtaposed alongside fruity flavors and a bit of bright lime. 

Unlike the unpredictable mountain climate that produces these select beans, the Café Britt Poas Volcanic Earth will consistently provide a complex, aromatic cup.

5.0 My favorite Costa Rican Coffee

by from Washington, Dc on

I became aware of Cafe Britt on my first trip to Costa Rica. I asked several ticos where I could find some good coffee, the hotels was not to my taste. Most suggested that anywhere I could find Cafe Britt coffee would be good. They were so correct. I discovered Poas two years ago and totally love it for my breakfast coffee. I like most of the other types as well but I think Poas is my favorite Costa Rican coffee.

5.0 This coffee got me hooked on Cafe Britt

by from Moscow on

While in Costa Rica, I couldnt get enough of their coffee. Poas Volcanic Earth I just picked up at a local supermarket after a very disappointing investigation at one of the hotels where I stayed when trying to find out a brand of the coffee they made I realized that they grew their own coffee especially for the hotel. So I didnt put my hopes high with Poas Volcanic Earth I picked it up at random. Well, to my surprise, the coffee was no worse than those i sampled throughout my Costa Rican trip! Since then I am a Cafe Britt faithful client.

5.0 absolute favorite

My son went to Costa Rica on a college trip to map out the area. He brought us home some of the Britt coffee and now we buy it every year for Christmas. We save this coffee for Sundays making our weekends that much more enjoyable.

5.0 Coffee Lover

by from Buckhead, Georgia on

While on a tour to the rain forest from Puerto Limon, our bus driver suggested if we wanted to buy coffee, that Poas was the best. I bought several bags to bring home. I LOVE this coffee. I order it on line and make sure that the supply never gets too low. Very good coffee!
