Costa Rica La Candelaria
Single Farm, Rainforest Alliance
The West Valley coffee region in Costa Rica has been called one of the most complex due to microclimates and the possibility of collecting the ripe cherry during the summer. Morning sunshine, afternoon rain, volcanic soils, and high elevations (without frost) make for a coffee growing heaven. These beans deliver medium body with balanced acidity. Enjoy your morning cup with tasting notes of chocolate, buttercream, and hazelnut.

About the growers: Some of the first immigrant farmers ever to settle in Costa Rica arrived in the 1800s, and like all true coffee lovers, they brought coffee seeds and seedlings with them. The West Valley, on the far west edge of the country’s coffee growing regions, produces almost 25% of Costa Rica’s total coffee, and also garners an extremely high percentage of Cup of Excellence winners. La Candelaria farm has a native wildlife protection program and a reforestation program with Rainforest Alliance certification.
