This coffee is viewed exceptional and given a Fancy specification. Tarrazú coffees are grown in high altitudes, allowing them to be designated SHB-single hard bean, the highest classification in the Costa Rican system. Growing coffee in rich volcanic soil and high altitude makes this Tarrazú the finest coffees in the world.
Tarrazú coffees are famed for snappy, strikingly clean flavor. Known as a “classically complete” coffee, they’re crisp and medium-bodied, with tangy flavor and a fine, satisfying aroma. Tarrazú cups wonderfully at all but the lightest and darkest roasts.
Specialty grade, 100% Arabica coffee.
