The beans of our Costa Rica Tarrazu hail from Costa Rica’s Tarrazu region, which is located in the southern pacific area south of its capital, San Jose. The combination of Costa Rica’s rich volcanic soil, cool and moist climate, and consistent seasonal changes work symbiotically to make this Central American country one of the world’s best coffee growing regions.
Its high elevations also allow for better drainage, which reduces the amount of water in the coffee fruit and creates a more significant flavor concentration. Tarrazu is celebrated for its rich volcanic soils in the highest altitudes of the country and produces nearly 35 percent of the country’s coffee.
