Hacienda la Amistad, located in Coto Brus, a canton in the province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica, is owned and operated by Roberto Montero, a third generation coffee farmer. Roberto’s grandfather first came to the area in the early 1900's as part of a team surveying the border between Costa Rica and the newly formed country of Panama. This organic coffee embodies all the good qualities you look for in a high-grown Costa Rican.

Cupping notes: A brown sugar sweetness with chocolate and a fruity orange finish. Expect a full-bodied Tarrazu zing in your cup.

People Who Bought This Also Bought

Chocolatey with a silky texture, heavy fruits, and a sweet honeyness.
Brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long, satisfying finish
This has an anise flavor which adds spice to the dark chocolate and vanilla bean flavors.

Not great but drinkable. I have tried four roasts ranging from light medium to medium-dark and was unable to reveal any flavor. I have been spoiled by Kona beans and I measure all beans against the Kona bean, perhaps I am not being fair but I have tried different roasts without favorable results. I guess you get what you pay for, the price for the Costa Rica beans was only about $7.00 per pound and is reflected by its flavor.

This is my favorite Costa Rican. I actually prefer this over the La Minita . There is more of a change to the flavor, body and acidity at the different roast levels. It does have a wonderful finish and the "zing" as stated in the desciption sure is present. When it cools it seems to be even better. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Costa rican coffee.
Costa Rica has produced some fine organics, and this is the best one we've had in the last 4 crop years; it is also my wife's favorite coffee, bar none.
