Costa Rica Reserve coffee beans are strictly hard bean, meaning they are grown at elevations of 3,900ft or more. The high altitude slows the growth of the coffee trees, causing the cherries to mature much slower; the result is dense coffee cherries containing beans packed with rich flavor. Home to many micro mills, Costa Rica has devoted farmers who take pride in ensuring that their plantations only produce high-quality yields. This gourmet coffee is one of the finest coffees that Costa Rica has to offer. Our Costa Rica Reserve coffee delivers a medium-bodied brew with perfectly balanced flavor and an enticing aromatic essence. Coffee from this country is also available as Decaf.
Cultivated and wet-processed in the region of Tarrazu, these Caturra varietals are certified SHB (strictly hard bean), which indicates these coffee beans are grown at altitudes above 3,900 feet. Medium-roasted, Costa Rica Reserve beans brew into a light-bodied coffee that is rich in chocolaty-caramel flavors. This coffee produces a cup that is winy with high acidity and a sharp finish.
