Costa Rica Tarrazu Coffee Beans – This coffee comes from the Costa Rican district of Tarrazu, one of four famous regions near San Jose, the nation’s capital. The highest altitudes of Tarrazu are over 3,900 feet, and these regions give rise to coveted “strictly hard beans,” or SHB. These are the highest quality coffee beans that Costa Rica has to offer. The volcanic soil of the coffee bean growing district of Tarrazu gives these green coffee beans a bright acidity. This coffee has fruity suggestions of apricot, berries, and citrus. As you drink it, you will detect a honey-like aftertaste with hints of chocolate, spices and malt.
