About the farmers
At the beginning of the 19th century, when coffee production was in its early beginnings in America, without knowing it, two pioneers and entrepreneurs, Alejo C. Jiménez in Costa Rica and Wilhelm Kahle in the south of Mexico, shared the same dream: “To produce the best coffee in the world” to satisfy the new demanding European gourmet market.
Today, descendants of these visionary farmers still produce coffee within the same ideals of excellency and top quality that inspired their ancestors that continue with the tradition in Costa Rica.
Today, the production process starts with the planting of the coffee trees on highly fertile volcanic soil above 1400 meters above sea level (SHB) in 3 different regions from Costa Rica.
Nowadays, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to further enhance the principles of quality inherited by our founders by adding the value of conservancy of natural resources, through the acquisition of extensions of natural rainforest for its protection and conservation. These facts, not just words, are small actions taken by one family to reduce air contamination and global warming. This is the contribution we want to make to mankind, this is the new awareness we want our future generations to inherit.
I'm finishing up my previous order from you which is the same flavor. As great as the Terrazu is, I'll be very Happy when you get the other Azul back in stock. It was extra good. You guys are incredible with your quality coffees. And your mailing response time is unbelievablely fast. I appreciate having my delicious coffee in Nebraska when I can't get to Phoenix. Your customer Service is just as quality as your coffee.
Costa Rica is one of my favorite coffee origins in general, and the Tarrazu does not disappoint. It has a nice citrus undertone without being acidic. This one is a staple on our shelf.
The beans were great!
Smooth as the beaches of Vieques. Full bodied yet light, earthy yet exotic
So, I know this said caramel undertones, but personally, I felt this was a medium roast coffee with chocolately undertones and was really rich and smooth (but not overpowering). This would be my second favourite coffee from Cortez at this point. Quality is fantastic and I really enjoyed the chocolaty flavour.
