About the bean

Tarrazu coffee is referred to as a "classically complete" coffee -- a sweet aroma, aromatic complexity, full body, pleasant acidity and a delicate clean aftertaste with rich chocolate and nutty undertones. 

The small Tarrazu region, in the high mountains is located in southern pacific region south of the capital of Costa Rica, is the most densely planted high altitude region. 

Tarrazu is celebrated as the region in Costa Rica for the best volcanic soils and highest altitudes. Because they grow at high altitudes and on volcanic soil, these shade grown coffee cherries ripen more slowly, which give it a rich and hearty flavour.
