Costa Rica Coffee is a medium roasted Arabica Bean Coffee. It comes from the Central American country of the same name, boasting a rich body with subtle notes of acidity.
This top-grade delight is well-suited to filter machines and cafetieres. We roast it using the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which uses convection heat transference. We then pack it fresh to order.
When it comes to caffeine content, Costa Rica Coffee is an excellent choice for getting you out of bed in the morning. It has approximately 100mg of this stimulating chemical compound per 8-oz cup. Some even suggest that it comes with health benefits.
However, you’re almost certainly here for its exceptional taste and its extraordinary character. Why not buy and brew today?
What is Costa Rica Coffee?
Central America is home to a plethora of much-loved Coffee varieties. Yet none are quite like our Costa Rica Coffee. This country has made Coffee since 1779 when the Spanish introduced it to the then-colony.
By the 19th century, the local government actively encouraged its mass-production to meet the demands of consumers - particularly Europeans. Free land was subsequently offered to farmers willing to grow it.
By 1829, Costa Rica Coffee exports had overtaken tobacco, sugar and cocoa as the most profitable cash crop. The construction of the nation’s first railway in 1890 further boosted the efficiency of the industry, enabling transportation of the beans to the Atlantic.
From there, it could travel to Europe with far greater ease, which in turn meant its success was sealed.
A few years later, in 1897, the government built the National Theatre in San Jose to showcase the financial results of Coffee production.
This was in part due to the ideal soil and climatic conditions of growing regions, thus creating a great-tasting brew.
Until the Second World War, England was the largest recipient of Costa Rica Coffee. Now, you can try it with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
