The Costa Rica SHB Tarrazu “La Pastora” coffees are rated some of the finest in the world. These beans are grown at high altitudes, above 1200 – 1800 m allowing them to be designated Single Hard Bean – the highest classification in the Costa Rican system. The soil is mostly volcanic and gives the beans a high acidity. Coopetarrazu is a driving force in the community. Besides being the largest employer in the region, it is constantly training its associates in the latest techniques to improve quality and production. Its workers are protected by an occupational safety program supervised by INS, the Costa Rican insurance company. Recycling and education programs have been introduced in the community by the cooperative's staff and thousands of dollars are donated every year to worthy programs in the region. Though not as renown as other coffee such a Kona or Jamaica, the quality of Tarrazu is quickly being recognized by coffee connoisseurs. Tarrazu coffee is growing through word of mouth and through coffee aficianados rather than by marketing, making its stage on the world market slow but steady. The Tarrazu coffee region of Costa Rica won’t be kept a secret for much longer. Costa Rican coffee beans are graded by the hardness of the bean. This is determined by the altitude at which they are grown: - (SHB) strictly hard bean is a coffee grown above 3,900 feet. - (GHB) good hard bean grow at 3,300 to 3,900 feet. - (MHB) medium hard bean grown at 1,600 to 3,300 feet. Roast: Full City: I think this coffee has best balance of fruit and chocolate at FC roast.

more fun than the grandkids

I am a long time Britt user but Rhoads is hands down the better coffee. It is fresh and has so much better taste. I have tried three different roast and the medium roast is the best for my taste. Have ordered a lot of pounds of coffee over the last year. If I', sleeping and let my coffee run low I do still get a high priced small amount of Brett but order Rhoads. I get 4 times the coffee taste and 4 times the coffee for the same price.

Costa Rica Tarrazu light roast

This excellent coffee has a mild clean flavor with high caffeine content very similar to Kona
at lower cost. If you like a good wakeup kickstart, or need a stay awake coffee, this coffee is
one of those few that are very good. It is not a good evening coffee unless you want to be
awake all night. Truckers or the night shift people should love this one. It is a dense hard
bean high altitude volcanic soil grown coffee that is top quality and you will hear the sound
of a burr grinder change for the harder bean compared to other varieties. I use the most
coarse grind setting and a drip coffee maker and the result is great coffee with no trace
of muddy or bitter flavor. This variety is good by itself or ground together as a blend with
other light or medium roast varieties.
