100% Tarrazú Gourmet Coffee
The Tarrazú region in Costa Rica, also known as “The Zone of the Saints” produces one of the most exquisite coffee bean harvests of the World. There are three major factors contributing to this refined bean’s unique quality and incomparable flavor. The first is the altitude of the region, which is between 1,300 to 1,800 meters above sea level. The second factor is the species of coffee plant that is used.
“COFFEE ARABICA” plants are sowed producing the highest quality beans, which are known as “CATURRA” and “CATUAI”. The third and final factor is the climate, which includes an annual precipitation of 2,000 mm. and an average of 2,150 hours of sunlight per season. These ideal conditions come together producing an extraordinary fruit with excellent flavor, intense aroma and high acidity.
