– a virtual travel experience

National Espresso Day

There are many things to love about Costa Rica: gorgeous landscape, clean beaches, warm weather  year round and premier coffee. Costa Rica is regarded as one of the world’s premiere coffee growing regions due to its volcanic soil and ideal drainage.

The most popular is the coffee plant varietal Caturra (Coffea arabica var. caturra) offers great body, often full, and a rich, robust flavor and crisp acidity. In particular the best high-grown coffees of Costa Rica are distinguished, light roasted coffee is delightfully smooth with a sweet, fruity aroma. Its flavor profile is marked by subtle chocolate nuances paired beautifully with the delicate hint of citrus. The cup finishes with a dry, lemon-like citrus nuance.  Costa Rican coffees are grown in high altitudes offering the perfect acidity. Its defining tasting notes include a brown-sugary sweetness, citrusy notes and apricot-like fruity flavors.

 As a result, this  Costa Rican coffee is the definition of ‘pura vida.’

Ummmm….another cup please.
