Coffee Growing Regions

Costa Rica has one of the widest ranges of microclimates, due to the drastic change in altitude and climate over relatively short distances. These differences in climatic factors determine the flavor of the final cup. Costa Rican coffee has set the standards for fine wet-processed coffee for the rest of Central and South America.

Your coffee comes from the volcanic soils at the highest elevations in Costa Rica. Coffee is best grown at an altitude of 3500-5500 ft. Cafe de Costa coffee is grown at this altitude only.

It is roasted in small batches to ensure freshness and consistency.

The ultimate quality of the coffee depends on:
* climate
* altitude
* soil
* care in picking, transporting and processing

A series of volcanic mountain chains runs from the Nicaraguan border in the north-west to the Panamanian border in the south-east, splitting the country in two. In the center of these ranges is a high-altitude plain,covered with vocanic ash called the central valley with coastal lowlands on either side. Which makes for perfect growing conditions.
