Estate Costa Rican coffee has a reputation as one of the finest coffees available. For this Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) Costa Rican coffee, altitude can certainly explain its superiority.
Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) is a grading term that means the beans have been grown at very high elevations, allowing the beans to slowly mature and develop into denser, harder beans with greater flavours.
Rich, volcanic soil, high elevation and climatic conditions all contribute to the unique flavour of this Costa Rican coffee. Intense aroma and a medium body make for a very well-balanced and pleasing cup.
