About

Our Costa Rican Tarrazu coffee possesses an inherently intense flavor with peaks of bright acidity and depths of sweet honey and chocolate. The body of Costa Rican Tarrazu is considered medium, but this famous coffee region does not lack for flavor and in all produces an incredibly satisfying cup.

In a spectacular region of Costa Rica known as the "Land of the Saints", farmers work tirelessly to care for this beautiful Costa Rican Tarrazu coffee. The main suppliers of this Costa Rican coffee represent small micro mills and traditional coops, ensuring only the highest quality cherries are obtained for production of this authentic Tarrazu coffee.

During the growth, harvest and processing of these coffee beans, all coffee pickers and producers are supplied with insurance, medical services, housing and transportation to the farming facilities.
