2.5 lbs Costa Rica SHB Tarrazu La Pastora Fresh Medium Roast 100% Arabica Coffee Beans
We loved this roast! Is smooth and exceptional creamy. We usually buy medium to dark roast but we thought we would try medium as we weren’t sure and based on other reviews we have it a try. Glad we did!
For decades, we've loved Costa Rica's Tarrazu coffee! My mother lived in San Jose for many years and introduced us to Tarrazu coffee during a visit. From then on, every time we visited her, we brought back bags of Tarrazu coffee. In between those trips (and after she eventually moved back up here) we'd have Tarrazu coffee beans shipped to us from Costa Rica. Occasionally, we tried buying Tareazu beans up here, but the coffee never seemed to taste quite as good. But there was the recurring problem of running out, ordering more, & having to get by with grocery store coffee until our order arrived. Not good.
Then we found Rhoads & La Pastora's SHB Tarrazu beans! It tastes at least as good as - probably even better than - the best Tarrazu coffee we'd EVER had!
We reordered from Rhoads a couple of times to get an idea of how long 2.5 lbs would last, then we subscribed to have it regularly delivered at just under that interval.
Now we're drinking the coffee we love & not worrying at all about running out or when to reorder! If it ever gets to a point where that little excess builds up to an extra bag, I'll just cancel the next shipment and otherwise stay on the same schedule. It's a really convenient program!
Arrived on time. Brew is great. Consistent with prior batch that I ordered.
The turnaround time was faster than expected. Surprising in the midst of this pandemic. This is our go-to coffee, and it never disappoints.
