Costa Rican coffee beans offer quite the range of flavors, most being rich in aroma and lucent with refined acidity and a full-bodied flavor. Costa Rica has the ideal soil, which contains a light grade of tropical acidity, and climate conditions for the production of coffee.
Costa Rican coffee blend is a must have and one of the top choices here at Native American Coffee.
Coffee production has played a key role in Costa Rica's history and continues to be important to the country's economy. The largest growing areas are in the provinces of San José, Alajuela, Heredia, Puntarenas, and Cartago. The coffee is exported to other countries in the world and is also exported to cities in Costa Rica.
Although Costa Rica produces a variety of blends, those that reach our specialty coffee menu are usually Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) coffees, which means they are grown at elevations of around 3,900 feet or more. When grown at high altitudes the growth of the coffee trees will slow down tremendously, the nights are often cooler; this causes the cherries to mature at a much slower pace.
