Costa Rica Tarrazu
Costa Rica's coffee cultivation began in 1779 with seedlings imported from Cuba. Within fifty years coffee had surpassed all other agricultural products to become the country's most lucrative export. Costa Rica is the only Central American nation to mandate that its coffee producers grow arabica coffee varieties exclusively. Owing to stringent quality-control measures employed during processing, premier Costa Rican coffees are meticulously wet-processed and embody a standard of excellence unequalled among other Latin American coffees. The Tarrazu is one of those jewels. Designated as Strictly Hard Bean (SHB), Costa Rica's highest grade, the Tarrazu's slow-maturing beans yield superior flavor, body, and acidity.
