Roasting: We prefer this coffee like most Costa Rican coffees in the lighter ranges. Start with a City or City + roast (light to medium light) or just before 2nd crack. You can take it up to Full City (medium) for a bit less crisp front end and a touch more body.
Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing
Our Review: This coffee is sourced from members of CoopeTarrazú R.L. CoopeTarrazú is a cooperative that was founded in 1960, and now has over 3,200 members from San Marcos de Tarrazú, a canton in the province of San Jose, Costa Rica. In 2004, CoopeTarrazú went through an organizational transformation bringing about five guiding principles for the cooperative: solidarity, transparency, sustainability, quality, and service. As part of their sustainable business model, CoopeTarrazú operates a profitable agriculture store and grocery store. Cooperative members also have access to low interest loans and healthcare. CoopeTarrazú also strives to serve the community through environmental protection initiatives and migrant worker support programs.
Costa Rican coffee is world renowned for being extremely well balanced, crisp and sweet. For folks who like a mild yet flavorful, silky cup, its best enjoyed black as cream and sugar just aren't necessary! This coffee is a bit less crisp (acidic) than others we've had, but we enjoyed the more gentle front end. Look for delightfully sweet flavors of milk chocolate, honey, lemon and a touch of almond.
