Costa Rica coffee is delightfully smooth with a sweet, fruity aroma. Its flavor profile is marked by subtle chocolate nuances paired beautifully with the delicate hint of citrus. The cup finishes with a dry, lemon-like citrus nuance.
Costa Rica is regarded as one of the world's premiere coffee growing regions due to its volcanic soil and ideal drainage. The Tarrazu region is located in the interior mountains of Costa Rica and is known to produce distinguished coffee. Tarrazu is a market name for coffees produced and processed within the region. Coffee from this area is known to be relatively heavy-bodied with a complex aroma.
Many consider Costa Rican Tarrazu at its best when prepared as a drip brew or pour over. The French press produces a somewhat brighter cup with more pronounced citrus nuances.
