Q GRADE: 83
Towards the south of San José you will find the majestic mountains of Tarrazú. Fondly know as the Area of the Saints, Tarrazú is considered to yield the most terrific Strictly Hard Bean coffees in Costa Rica, grown at altitudes between 1.200 to 2.000 m.
The rich volcanic soil, the high altitude, as well as the perfect mixture of sunlight, temperature, and precipitation provide the essential components to produce an speciality coffee.
The sheild from the Pacific Coast, Central Valley and the high peaks of the country´s central mountain range make Tarrazú one of the world’s most famous coffee growing regions.
What is Strictly Hard Bean?
Strictly hard bean refers to coffee grown in altitudes higher than 4,500ft above sea level. Beans grown at high altitudes mature more slowly and grow to be harder and denser than coffee beans grown at lower elevations...hence the name Strictly Hard Bean!
