Costa Rican Single Origin Coffees
Most coffees are a blend of beans from different growing regions around the world. Often, the best beans are mixed with other varieties to reduce the overall expense. Costa Rican coffee beans are highly sought after by many gourmet coffee purveyors. It is rare to find a blend of 100% gourmet Costa Rican beans and it is even more unusual to find single origin coffee from a specific region within our country.
We have four types of single origin coffee: Tarrazú Montecielo, Tres Ríos, Fair Trade and Poás Volcanic Earth. Each one, as explained earlier, the name of each coffee is named after the place that the beans are collected. Let’s present each one of them and their differences concerning region, aroma, taste and roast.
Poás Volcanic Earth
The slopes of the active Poás volcano are rich with ash, which helps the nurtured soil to produce this exceptional coffee. Dark roasted, complex and aromatic.
A high-mountain climate, marked wet and dry seasons, and soils enriched by the Irazú volcano provide optimum conditions for growing fine coffee. This dark roast is balanced and elegant with complex flavor. A lively snap is followed by a soft, friendly finish.
Origin: Tres Ríos
Taste: Plum, allspice
Arabica coffee cherries from Costa Rica’s famed Tarrazú region ripen evenly at 1,400 to 1,600 meters. This dark roast brew will surprise with hints of cacao and grapefruit and an aroma of aged wood. The intensity fills the palate then, fades cheerfully.
Origin: Tarrazú, Los Santos
Aroma: Basil, sweet cedar
Taste: Chocolate, Grapefruit
Our Fair Trade coffee hails
from the Brunca region. It is
one of the country’s youngest
coffee-producing zones and is
internationally certified as a
Fair Trade growing area. This dark roasted bean exudes aromas reminiscent of wild flowers
with fresh wood undertones.
Aroma: Fresh wood
Taste: Wild flowers
