The Central Valley is composed of the provinces of San José, Heredia and Alajuela. It is the most highly populated region of Costa Rica, where the capital, San José, is located. Here, coffee plantations were first established and were then taken to the other seven coffee growing regions.
The Central Valley coffee region ranges from 900 to 1.600 meters of altitude; however, more than 80% of coffee plantations are located between 1.000 and 1.400 meters above sea level.
Altitude and climatic factors have an effect on the size and hardness of coffee beans and influence certain components of the beverage’s quality, in particular, its acidity. These elements complement the features of Arabica coffee, which offer an aromatic, delicate and tasty drink.
Costa Rica is famed with honey processed. This is a red honey processed where 80-90% of the mucilage remains on the bean. Coffee beans are dried on raised beds in overcast or shaded conditions and raked on the first morning and then only once or twice in the afternoon
As a result, you'll get an intense darker colour sweetness like a prune and blackberries, finish with dark chocolate aftertaste. A really nice pick to start your day.
