Costa Rica La Rosa
There are only four farms that belong to the larger Coopronaranjo which grow this particular bean, "La Rosa" or The Rose, and their claim to fame is the floral aroma in their coffee. With tasting notes of brown sugar, tangerine, and vanilla bean, it delivers medium body and balanced acidity. Enjoy your morning cup with a clean aftertaste and lingering sweetness.
