Our very own Costa Rica Coffee is a favourite of Coffee Roasters for having fine, delicate flavours with a rich body and a subtle note of acidity. It is a top-grade, medium-roasted arabica bean Coffee, one well-suited to filter machines or cafetieres. Of course, however, that choice is yours.
Nevertheless, it’s important to note that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company have been roasting coffees for over 30 years, and we pride ourselves in producing freshly roasted, finest-quality Coffees every time. All of our Coffees, including our Costa Rica Coffee, are roasted using the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to roast the Coffee.
In turn, this ensures both quality and consistency, meaning every time you choose Costa Rica Coffee, you’re having the very same Coffee you love, time and time again.
Costa Rica is considered one of the world’s best Coffee-growing countries. For Costa Ricans, Coffee is an integral part of life and society. It sustains the economy and is one of the country’s biggest exports. The production of Coffee dates back hundreds of years, to 1779, when Spanish colonists introduced arabica Coffee plants.
By the 19th Century, the Costa Rican government actively encouraged the mass-production of Coffee to meet the growing demands of consumers, mainly Europeans. As such, land was offered free to farmers who wanted to move towards Coffee production. The move paid off, and even today, Costa Rica has ideal soil and climate for Coffee to thrive, with many farmers producing beans on an astonishing scale.
By 1829, the production of Costa Rican Coffee had overtaken tobacco, sugar and cocoa, the profits allowing for the construction of Costa Rica’s first railway in 1890, named the Ferrocarril al Atlántico, which in turn transported Coffee beans to the Atlantic coast for exportation to Europe. In 1897, the Costa Rican government oversaw the construction of the National Theatre in San Jose, the capital, its purpose to show off the economic success of Costa Rica’s Coffee Industry and the promise of a bright future in further development.
Until the Second World War, England was the largest recipient of Costa Rican Coffee exports; however, this is no longer the case. Nevertheless, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company continue to sell our delicious Costa Rica Coffee, which is packed fresh to order and distributed here in our Pluckley-based factory, nestled away in the beautiful Kentish countryside.
