DESCRIPTION

Due south of San José, you will find the majestic mountains of Tarrazú. Sheltered between the Pacific Coast, the Central Valley and the high peaks of the country ́s central mountain range, Tarrazú is one of the world's most famous coffee-growing regions. This magnificent area, fondly known as the Area of the Saints, is considered to yield the most superb Strictly Hard Bean coffees in Costa Rica, grown at altitudes between 3,650 to 5,900 feet.

The rich volcanic soil, the high altitude, and the perfect combination of sunlight, temperature, and precipitation provide the essential components to produce an exceptional coffee.

International cuppers have recognized San Rafael RZ Tarrazú during its 150 years of existence as the best coffee in the Tarrazú region. This cup exemplifies a true Tarrazú with its deep aroma, vibrant and lemony acidity and smooth finish.

When you buy your speciality coffee from Lalico Coffee, you support small farms producing high-quality coffees. Many benefit from Fairtrade Federation and Rainforest Alliance initiatives that protect workers' rights and the environment.

Our coffee is hand-roasted to order for you. I guarantee it hasn't been sitting on a supermarket shelf for weeks, getting stale! Every batch is individually profile roasted with care. Every coffee has different characteristics, and therefore its individual profile is replicated, keeping high quality consistent.

Kessy and I would like you to experiment with new flavours from different countries, so we often send free samples with your order for you to enjoy.

Lalico Coffee supplies artisan coffees to individuals, cafés, restaurants and hotels. Please contact us directly for our discounted prices for 6kg and more.
