Costa Rica from La Pastora, Tarrazu Region "Medium Roast"
Description: Costa Rica contributes less than 1% of the world’s coffee production, yet it has a strong reputation for producing some of the best coffee in the world. Costa Rica boasts eight coffee growing regions, the most famous of which is Tarrazu. Its high altitudes and lush vegetation contribute to its coffees’ crisp acidity.
