This is a great breakfast coffee! It is an Arabica bean that is grown both on the mountain and in the shade. Costa Rican coffee has hints of vanilla-toned dark chocolate, smoky cedar, orange citrus, peach and melon, in both aroma and cup. The coffee has a well-rounded and gently muted acidity, a lean but smoothly silky mouthfeel and a lingering clean cocoa-toned finish.
Most of the coffee in Costa Rica is grown in the rich volcanic soils in the famous Tarrazu mountain region. Costa Rica is famous for its gourmet coffee beans, with Costa Rican Tarrazú among the finest Arabica coffee beans in the world used for making espresso coffee. The coffee production in Costa Rica played a key role in the country’s economic history and still is important for the Costa Rican economy even to date. In 2006, coffee was Costa Rica’s number three export, after being the number one cash crop export for several decades
