We source our green coffee beans from the Tarrazú Mountains of Costa Rica. The coffee producers manage two complete wet and dry mills. These coffee mills are fed by thirty of their own purchasing and receiving stations, where they buy coffee cherries or fruit from over 1,000 farmers each year!
Coffee is generally traded in the cherry form in Costa Rica, so every afternoon and evening during the harvest the roads are packed with trucks, loaded with freshly picked coffee cherries, traveling from farm to receiving station and receiving station to mill. In the beating heart of the harvest, trucks roll into mills all through the night and into the early morning.

Every year they have a wide selection of coffee from small and large farms, especially processed coffees from partner micro-mills and special varietal selections and processes from their own mill.

Costa Rican coffees are among the world’s best coffees. Dramatic mountain ranges with high elevations steer the ocean breezes and rain clouds, young volcanic soil provides an excellent medium for coffee trees and dedicated farmers tend their coffee trees and manage the health and harvest of the coffee fruit. We source our greens coffee beans from them because we know we will have quality and consistency and therefore once we receive the bags of green coffee beans and lovingly hand-roast the coffee, the final product, the cup of coffee will be superb.
The coffee is well balanced with notes of tropical fruit and bittersweet chocolate and a smooth pronounced body.
