This is an amazing coffee from our friends in Costa Rica. Well on their way to attain organic certification, no pesticides, herbicides, or inorganic fertilizers are used in their coffee production. The entire family is involved in tending, cultivating, harvesting, sorting these beans, all by hand! We hope our small initial purchase will lead to a long term relationship, as we have done in so many other places, to see families' income flourish, communities strengthen.
The Tarrazu region produces some of the best Costa Rican coffee around on a consistent basis. The capital of San Marcos is around 1,350 meters above sea level but the surrounding mountains go up to 1,700 meters, allowing for very high altitudes and the development of the very best coffees. The Tarrazu region is located in the country’s interior mountains, with a minimum altitude of 1,200 meters, and the best coffees from this area is known to be relatively heavy-bodied, exhibiting a complex aroma. Nearly all Tarrazu coffees are Strictly High Grown.
