Costa Rican coffees grow in the perfect soil and climate. The rich volcanic soils receive daily rains and the cool canopy of Cherokee Bean trees keep the sun sensitive coffee plants from burning and naturally enrich the soil. At an altitude of 1,700 meters, the coffee beans ripen slower and harden with more densely packed flavor. Costa Rican coffees are known for their solid balance and bright flavors. Tropical fruits, honey and roasted nuts give a full mouth feel with a smooth, chocolate finish. An immensely popular choice among connoisseurs.
