    I’m really pleased to be able to continue to bring you this coffee from Costa Rica. It has become an increasingly premium coffee as growing areas are being eroded by modern living and tourism continue to rise.

    Year on year it becomes a rarer crop and therefore its price increases, it's doubled in the past few years. We’re hoping this high-altitude premium coffee will be around for many years to come.  The very best Costa Rican coffee is sometimes illegally substituted for Blue Mountain, put into barrels and sold for 10 times as much!

    The clean and sweet flavour lends itself well to the AeroPress brewing method.

    Costa Rica has tough regulations expressly forbidding the growth of low quality coffee varieties. The quality of the best of these coffee beans can be quite amazing. The country also has the 'Speciality Coffee Association of Costa Rica', which is a collective of the best producers of Costa Rican coffee who control the export of the very best coffees available.
