Costa Rica La Rosa $11.95 /lb.

This year we visited farms and cooperatives from which we source our outstanding Costa Rican coffee. The much-anticipated new crop has arrived. Given a full city roast, La Rosa coffee yields a gentle flavor of dark chocolate in the cup with hints of raspberry and lemon. Shade-grown Arabica trees are fed by rich volcanic soil high up in to mountains of the Naranjo growing region. With an average rainfall of 100 inches per year, annual temperatures between 72°-78°F Naranjo ensures the perfect growing conditions for quality beans.

Organized in 1968, the Co-Op is 2500 members strong. La Rosa is a select micro lot within the cooperative’s yield. The coffee is from seven carefully chosen growers, whose farms average 20 acres in size. The farmers are committed to environmental protection, efficient use of resources and sustainable practices. They have streamlined their operations minimizing water consumption, transformed solid wastes into organic fertilizers, and have implemented forest protection programs. Their efforts benefit the flora and fauna of Costa Rica and ensure the highest quality for future coffee crops.

Look for more fresh roasted special offerings from Costa Rica throughout the year. –Jamie Anderson
