Costa Rican is always considered on of the most well balanced and premium coffees available. Costa Rican coffees are exceptionally high grown in amazing volcanic soil. These two factors come together to produce a very bright and very clean cup. The best Costas are the cups that develop a bit of berry fruitiness to compliment the straight-out brightness.
Tarrazu is the marquis region of Costa Rica noted for the best soils and highest altitudes. While no single country, or region can guarantee an exact level of coffee year in and year out, as coffee is subject to wind, ra in, sun, and other sometimes-less-than-cooperating forces of nature, coffees from Tarrazu do consistently stand out for their brightness and clean cups, with hints of light berry and apple cider .
