Guanacaste (July 22)
Lemongrass, Honeycomb, Fudge
The Costa Rica Guanacaste is produced by smallholder farmers in the La Esperanza community of Los Santos de Tarrazú region. The Tarrazú region lies in the high mountains of the southern Pacific region south of Costa Rica’s capital city of San Jose and is one of the most densely planted high altitude regions in Central America, with many farms at or above 2000 meters above sea level. The fertile, volcanic soils and rolling mountainsides of Tarrazú are well-suited for agriculture. Smallholder producers grow bananas, avocado, and citrus as well as coffee on properties passed between generations. Coffee is a family affair in Tarrazú, with everyone working to help pick and sort coffee during the harvest season and maintain the land during the year.

The Costa Rica Guanacaste is a delicious washed process coffee that has an excellent mouthfeel and acidity, coupled with an abundance of sweetness across all roast levels. Lighter roasts are bright and juicy with notes of wildflower honey, citrus fruit, nougat, and brown sugar. Darker roasts have a chewy mouthfeel and notes of fudge, chocolate covered cherry, merlot and toffee.
Shipping & Returns

The Trees We Plant
We plant mangrove trees, one of the most effective nature-based methods for absorbing carbon emissions out of the atmosphere. Reforestation serves as a direct investment into the future of our planet. When you plant with us, you are making a lasting impact directly attributed to you that goes far beyond offsetting. Studies show that Mangroves “sequester carbon at a rate two-four times greater than mature tropical forests” and contain the highest carbon density of all terrestrial ecosystems. This makes them one of the most efficient tools we have in efforts against a warming climate!
Reduce your footprint
Any coffee retailer can significantly reduce their carbon footprint by buying green coffee beans local. Reducing delivery miles, reducing packaging, and making business decisions to support the environment.
