One of our favorites from last year! We couldn’t wait to try the new crop. Smooth notes of sugar-sprinkled fruit tart evolve into a creamy vanilla (marshmallow?) as the cup cools. The kids get hot cocoa; we get Costa Rica. We win.
Costa Rican coffee holds a dear place in our hearts, our palates craving the chocolate and vanilla from the rich volcanic soils. This coffee won't disappoint you. In fact, add cream and melon to your chocolate and this is your new favorite morning coffee. From start to finish, the cup is sweet and juicy with a full butterscotch and chocolate body. We eagerly wait every year for this coffee since we first met the producer and owner in 2014.

"One of the best Costa Rican beans I've tried. Brewed on Kalita it's very smooth and sweet. Perfectly balanced between the melon, red fruit, vanilla and marshmallow flavors. The chocolate rounds it all out. It's juicy, sweet and a very well rounded bean." (5 out of 5)

"Smooth and slightly sweet, very happy with this roast showing up in my box! I feel it came out a bit richer from my blue bottle pour-over rather than my Aeropress. Brew methods used : Aeropress + Pour-Over." (5 out of 5)

"I agree with past reviews; It was one of my favorites. This coffee had the right balance and the right flavor to keep me saying "Mmm!" Vanilla and melon all around, this coffee is great with or without sugar. Very complimentary with milk. " (5 out of 5)
"As soon as this started brewing, I could smell the sweet flavor of the vanilla. It was a dark, balanced combination of flavors that was perfect on its own or with a little milk. I don't particularly enjoy melon, but couldn't taste it at all in the coffee, making the experience even better." (5 out of 5)
