There are a lot of things to love about Costa Rica. The landscape is gorgeous. The beaches are clean, and the weather is warm year round. What we love most, however, is the coffee. Costa Rica is regarded as one of the world's premiere coffee growing regions due to its volcanic soil and ideal drainage. As a result, this dark roasted, full-bodied coffee creates a slightly more complex cup than the light roast. Its flavor profile is marked by the same subtle chocolate and citrus nuances, but its finish has a gentle, lingering smokiness. Without a doubt, this stuff is the definition of ‘pura vida.’
French Roast Costa Rican Tarrazu is especially well-suited for brewing in a french press, but it’s also great in an autodrip.
