Costa Rica Terrazu Coffee Beans
This lot is from the south western region of the Central Valley, known as Los Santos.
Protected by the Pacific basin range, this region is a sanctuary of mytical birds and forests, producing some of the highest quality coffees grown in small valleys and mountain slopes.
Costa Rican coffees are rated as some of the best available - prepared by arguably the most skilled and professional coffee farmers in the world.

So what is the difference between all the Costa Ricas in the mycuppa store ?
Costa Rica FAIRTRADE - A Certified coffee with hints of apple, apricot and dried fig.
Costa Rica Jaguar - One of our favourites and a Silver Medal winner at the Royal Sydney 2016 Coffee awards. Sparkling acidity with complex tropical fruit flavors.
Costa Rica Candelaria - Elegant pear, cedar and apricot noted with a long, sweet finish. Beautiful in milk
Costa Rica Tarrazu - Did somebody say Honey ? Hello honey !
Please note, this coffee may be labelled as Tarrazu DOTA as we have labels already printed with DOTA on them.
The Costa Rican Tarrazu makes an excellent choice for milk-based espresso beverages - cappuccino, flat white or latte.
With clean, complex acidity we think it's is a perfect match for the milk and combined with subtle chocolate and the full, rich body Tarrazu is bound to delight.
A very sweet tasting cup that lingers on the palate with hints of fruit.
Keep coming back to Tarrazu16 July 2018I love trying the variety of mycuppa options, but I always have a slight disappointment with other bean purchases - nothing is as good as Tarrazu! The depth and honey in this bean is just outstanding. Makes an incredible coffee, and varies very little in its flavour profile (I've been buying it regularly for 2 years!).
So good!18 May 2017I admit, I'm a relative newbie to mycuppa and buying fresh roasted coffee beans in general, but the Tarrazu is an instant favourite - warm and smooth, but rich and flavoursome at the same time, I'm drinking way too much coffee! Definitely clear honey notes in the flavour.
