Costa Rica Alto San Juan


Rich and buttery mouthfeel, caramel, milk chocolate, super sweet with slightly floral undertone in the finish

Wonderfully moreish quaffable coffee – without doubt that is what this is.

This coffee comes from small growers at around Alto San Juan small coop located in a region that is well known for some of the most interesting coffees, as well as some of the most renowned coffees to come out of Costa Rica.

Costa Rica produces some wonderful coffees at a local level like this and by that I mean small individual processed lots of which this is a supreme example of a select lot. Larger bulk lots of coffee where everything is thrown in together can be (is) very mono in taste, not a lot of complexity, call it classic if you wish.

The coffee coop of Alto San Juan of course pick by hand in the traditional way using baskets and this is done only when the cherries reach a perfect stage of ripeness. This not only makes for a perfect tasting coffee, but also ups the agronomic yield and avoids processing green beans.

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness. If you don’t own a grinder you can buy one here, or you can specify that you’d like us to grind it for you in your Basket.
