Like the country itself, Costa Rican coffees bridge a gap between established traditions and unexpected delights. Costa Rica La Rosa delivers on subtlety, with a balanced cup full of cocoa and relaxed fruit flavors. This coffee surprises with nuanced acidity — nothing overpowering here, but enough brightness to dance around on your palate. La Rosa hails from a decades-old cooperative in Costa Rica’s Alajuela province. With a membership that includes an all-star list of famed Costa Rican coffee producers, the Coopronaranjo co-op farmers each hold about 20 acres on average. More than world-class coffees, the co-op works to grow their own community with educational and school supply programs, volunteering, and serving disabled neighbors with their Talita Cumi program.
A cup of coffee is practically a religious experience for us. We revere it, we crave it and we anticipate brewing and drinking it every day. Every coffee has a story, a history of soil, people and culture that make each one special. And it’s that combination that keeps us curious to learn about and eager to experience the next cup.
