About

Costa Rica Tarrazu green coffee is an amazing offering due to it's delicious flavor as a stand alone single origin and for its easy blend-ability. We suggest roasting this green coffee to a medium to dark level to enhance the bean's inherent sweetness and clean body.

Our unroasted, green coffee selection is intended for roasting purposes. Do not consume green coffee. Green coffee that has been purchased and roasted is not returnable.

Altitude

It’s not just about where coffee grows but how high up it grows. Flavors become lighter and more complex the further from sea level a coffee grows, going from earthy to sweet to nutty citrus and chocolate to spiced wine and fruits.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Harvest

Oct - Mar

Export

Dec - July

Costa Rica

The picturesque landscape of Costa Rica is home to some of the world’s most famous coffees. The high elevation—up to 1,800 masl—makes for remarkably distinct coffee, with flavors ranging from sweet wine to cocoa to cinnamon. Costa Rica is known for growing Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) coffee. SHB coffee matures slower than lower-altitude coffee, giving it more time to develop additional nutrients and density.Fresh Roasted Coffee’s Costa Rican offerings come from two areas separated by the capitol, San José: Tarrazu and Alajuela.
