As light roast, Costa Rica coffees will Taste very clean with a sweet, mild acidity. Flavor notes can range from honey and molasses to grape and citrus. Brew through a paper filter to highlight these bright flavors. As a medium roast, roasting a little more will emphasize a full body and a pleasant sweetness.
Costa Rica is the only country in the world where it is actually illegal to produce any type of coffee other than 100% Arabica—the highest quality of coffee beans. A law was passed in 1989 prohibiting the planting of low-quality beans, encouraging Costa Rican farmers to pursue true excellence.
Arabica beans are a specific variety of beans that is more difficult to grow than other, hardier stocks. The result when the beans mature though is rich, full-bodied flavors leading to premium blends. In Costa Rica we take growing coffee seriously and so we only want to offer you the best. That’s why we only grow Arabica.
Had the pleasure to go to my friends place La Manita to do a harvest.
