How It Tastes

A satisfying, full-bodied cup with deep, pungent flavor and a hint of smokiness just below the surface.

History

We love Costa Rica for its natural beauty, vivacious people, and high social and environmental standards. But most of all, we love it for the excellent coffee that reflects all these qualities. While the fine coffees of this Central American country are featured in many of our signature blends, we save the most distinctive lots for our single-origin Costa Rica. Most frequently selected are finds from the fabled (and shrinking) region of Tres Rios, high lemony coffees from the Zona de Los Santos in Tarrazu, or our favorite single estate of Doka on the shoulders of the Poás volcano. Here our longstanding partners the Vargas family produce a broad shouldered cup, that springs not only from their deep agronomic expertise, but acute social consciousness and environmental stewardship.

Worth Noting

This coffee is consistently of the highest quality, with the brightness and spicy notes the best high-grown Latin American beans are known for.

Paula from Gaylord, MI on 3/2/2017. Drinking Peet's since 2012.

This is a remarkably complete coffee. I usually blend Latin American coffees with Indonisian coffee to get a broad range of flavors, but it wasn't necessary here. This has all the diverse flavor of a blend without being a blend. Amazing. And the aroma is incredible. Ever consider selling coffee-scented candles?

Reynolds from Linwood, NJ on 10/4/2016. Drinking Peet's since 1992.

When I became a Peet's subscription customer over 20 years ago, we tried everything. Indonesia, Africa-all of it. But when we hit on Costa Rica, that is our all time favorite. Spicy, full, rich without being muddy as so many full bodied coffees can be. A completely clean finish. I only wish it were carried in stores!

After visiting Costa Rica in 2010, my family is hooked on their coffee. Tried several brands but only this coffee from Peet's compares with what we drank and purchased in Costa Rica. Have tried other coffees from all over the world and a variety of limited editions. This continues to be our favorite! Thank you for a great cup of coffee.

The Costa Rica was not my 1st choice to sample, but it is the most impressive. Maybe it's because I steer away from medium bodied coffees. This coffee is full, and bold enough for me. The smokiness really makes up for the slightly less fullness of Peet's very full selections. I will order again.
