Introducing Tarrazú (pronounced tar-ah-zoo), a coffee often referred to as 'classically complete'. A full body, high acidity, delicate aroma and clean notes of cacao, cherry and brown sugar make it ideal for those who enjoy a dark roast or have their coffee with milk.
The Tarrazú owes it flavour to the nutrient-rich volcanic soil and high altitudes in which it grows, located on a small farm, La Finca Cafetelera, located in the Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica’s capital. These conditions allow the coffee cherry to ripen more slowly, imparting its characteristic bold tasting notes.
Coffee from this area is so sought-after and so essential to the local economy that the population of the surrounding towns triples from 10,000 to more than 30,000 during harvest season - between November and April. Milk drinker or enjoy a full-bodied coffee? The Tarrazú could soon be your favourite.
