Coffee Bean Producing Regions of Central America


Costa Rican Coffee Beans

Costa Rican coffee beans are considered to be some of the best in Central America. Beans from Costa Rica are given altitude ratings, and the highest-rated beans are grown at the highest altitude. These are designated as “strictly hard beans”. These beans have a higher acidity or brightness, meaning that the taste is sharp and bright. And, many describe the balance as near to perfect. You will also notice that beans from Costa Rica have fruity, chocolatey, nutty flavors. Another distinguishing factor to Costa Rican beans is their intensely fragrant aroma.

Guatemalan Coffee Beans

Like Costa Rican beans, Guatemalan beans are rated by elevation with the highest rating going to the highest elevation. Guatemalan beans typically have full-bodied flavor, which is atypical of most Central American coffees. Most also are sweet, chocolaty, and spicy in flavor. These coffees are often rich and even velvety. The Antigua region of Guatemala is renowned as the best coffee growing region in the country. Situated in a valley surrounded by three volcanoes, the soil is ideal for creating a deep chocolaty flavor and a full-bodied, balanced cup of coffee. Give the Antiguan beans a try if you prefer this flavor profile.

Mexican Coffee Beans

The majority of coffee in the United States is imported from Mexico. So, chances are you’ve had this coffee somewhere before. However, abundance in beans doesn’t mean they’re all ordinary. Quite the opposite is true. Several high-quality coffees come from the various Mexican states, including Chiapas. While there are certainly distinctives to coffees grown in the various regions of this vast country, some flavors seem to be generally present in most beans from Mexico. Typically, you will notice chocolaty, nutty, buttery, and flowery flavors. And most Mexican coffees have a lighter body and acidity.

Subtleties of Central American Beans

Central America is a large region, and you will find tasty nuances and differences depending on where each bean is grown. If you’re uncertain where to begin, a good starting place is our Central American Coffees Sampler. You’ll be introduced to coffees from Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, and Panama. Another great resource is our Coffee Bean Matrix. Here you can personalize all of your preferences, even region.
